Arrests made in Kinuso gun theft
RCMP believe they’ve recovered some of the dozens of guns stolen from a hardware store in Kinuso.
Police said four suspects, two men and two women, pulled up to the Kinuso Mercantile in a truck around 5 a.m. on Tuesday and smashed through the glass doors.
Once they gained entry, the suspects stole about 40 firearms including shotguns and rifles.
The suspects, all wearing gloves and masks, were in and out of the store in about five minutes. Faust RCMP said they also made off with electronics and clothing.
On Friday, RCMP made two arrests after a brief standoff.
On Tuesday, RCMP officers went to a house in Barrhead and found a stolen truck believed to be involved in the break-in. They found six long guns and ammunition in the truck.
RCMP spoke to a male at the front door who confirmed two suspects were present at the house, who refused to surrender. After the police dog unit and a specialized response team turned up, the suspects decided to turn themselves in.
