Local authorities recovered more than 8,000 shotgun shells Thursday in their investigation of a Joplin man suspected of shoplifting 19 cases of ammunition from the Wal-Mart store in Carthage and committing similar thefts at Wal-Mart stores in other towns.

Garrett M. Koon, 23, was arrested Tuesday and charged with theft. The Joplin Police Department special weapons and tactics team, members of the Jasper County Drug Task Force and Carthage police arrested Koon when they served a search warrant at his residence on the southwest side of the city.

While none of the stolen ammunition was found at his home, a second search warrant was served on a phone that led to the recovery of 8,000 shells in possession of someone who had bought them from the suspect not knowing that they were stolen, according to Carthage police Chief Greg Dagnan.

Dagnan said Koons is suspected of having committed similar thefts from Wal-Mart stores in Webb City, Monett and Neosho in recent days. He was being held Thursday at the Jasper County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
