Traffic stop leads to dozens of stolen weapons

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Two Salina men have been arrested in connection with the theft of more than 100 guns from a local sporting goods store after police found two of the guns during a traffic stop.

The Salina Journal ( ) reports 68 of 118 guns stolen from Cleve’s Marine and Sporting Goods on April 14 were found in the apartment of a 32-year-old Thursday night.

Police Capt. Mike Sweeney says investigators were led to the apartment after two stolen guns were found hidden in an area where a driver was arrested Wednesday.

Police found the two guns after arresting a 27-year-old who walked away from the traffic stop. Information from the stop led to the other man’s apartment.

The Saline County attorney’s office declined to say Friday whether any charges had been filed.
