Guns missing following rural burglary
10/08/2018

(KAIR)--An Atchison County burglary, believed to have specifically focused on guns located inside the residence, is under investigation.

Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie told MSC News the crime was reported Friday, having occurred at an Osage Road residence, in rural Atchison County. “It was forced entry,” Laurie said. “They made entry through one door, and possibly exited out of the front door. It was targeted theft, and they went directly for the guns and removed them. A few of them they didn't take with them.”

Believing the break-in was based on knowledge that the resident owned guns, Laurie said investigators do have suspects in the case. “We have a few leads already that we're following up with,” Laurie said.

Taken from the home were a shotgun, two .22 caliber rifles, and two air rifles.

The total loss is estimated at around $2,000.
