During a 10-day time span starting on June 19, 2013 and ending on June 29, 2013, a residence located on Highway 67 in the Maud area around the old Crystal Springs Water Park was burglarized twice.

A large amount of ammunition, several firearms, and several other items were taken in the first break-in. The property taken in this crime has a reported value of $11,467.00.

The day after filing the first report, the homeowner returned to his house to again find someone had entered his home. This time a gun safe was forced open. Twenty-eight firearms were removed and stolen from inside this safe. The stolen firearms include both handguns and long guns that have a reported value of $27,278.00.

This brings the total dollar loss from these two burglaries to $38,745.00. Both of these cases are ongoing active investigations, but there are no suspects at this time.

The homeowner is offering up to a $10,000.00 reward for the return of all of his missing firearms, or the arrests and convictions of the suspects. Anyone with information about either of these crimes should contact Investigator David Biggar at 903.628.6815.

Attached below is a complete list of items stolen in this incident.

They need to post photos, descriptions, and serial numbers of the guns.

I'd be happy to go to gun shows, pawn shops, flea markets, etc... and look for them around here. Not for the reward but just to catch the thieves and see them locked up.

As for the ammo, hey with the shortages of ammo I bet it sells quick and I don't know how to identify ammo that has been stolen.
