Guns Stolen in Carl Junction

Updated:
CARL JUNCTION, MISSOURI -

Carl Junction's Circle T Collectibles has everything from Native American artifacts to Civil War memorabilia. But the burglar or burglars who broke into the store sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning were focused on one thing: Guns.

Five modern pistols, one World War II era pistol, and a rifle were taken in what's being described as a "smash and grab" burglary.

"They actually seemed to target what they were looking for. Mostly concealable type pistols and one rifle, and then got away clean at this point," said Carl Junction Chief of Police Delmar Haase.

The burglar smashed through the Circle T's front window, went straight to a display case which held the guns at the time, smashed it open, took the firearms, and was gone. Adding to owner Wendell Triplett's frustration is the fact that his security system never went off.

"The building is equipped with a glass break detector and a motion detector as well as smoke and door alarms. We had all this damage, but I never got a call during the night, nor did our local authorities," said Triplett.

Triplett didn't want to name his security system. He and the company behind it are currently examining why the alarm never went off. Both the Carl Junction police and the owner of Circle T Collectibles are reaching out to the public for tips on this crime. And, there's even a reward being offered.

"There is a $500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals who did this," said Triplett.
