Police seek 16-year-old after nearly 100 guns stolen from Yakima store
YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — Yakima police say one man is in jail and police are looking for a 16-year-old boy after at least 98 firearms were stolen from an outdoor supply store last week.
The Yakima Herald-Republic says bail was set at $150,000 Monday for the 24-year-old man. Police say he wasn’t involved in the burglary but knew the guns were stolen and helped move them around the house.
On Saturday, police found a stash of nearly four dozen stolen guns under the floor of the Yakima home that the man shared with other relatives. About 42 of the 47 guns recovered in the home were linked to a burglary at Grumpy’s Outdoor Supply.
Police say burglars punched a large hole in the building’s drywall and stole pistols, rifles and other firearms around 2:20 a.m. Thursday.
The guns were first reported stolen Thursday.
