Amherst Police Seeking Information on Stolen Guns

Amherst Co., VA - Stolen guns ruined a Thanksgiving hunting trip for an Amherst County man. Four guns were taken from Shannon Middleton's pickup truck last week.

Middleton was at the store where he bought one of the guns Tuesday. He was there to get a serial number to give to investigators.

He admits his truck was unlocked and parked near his home on Irvin Drive when they were taken.

"I got up Thursday morning about 4 o'clock. I put the guns in there between 12 and 2 and at 4 o'clock they were already gone. Somebody had taken them out of my vehicle," Middleton said.

The stolen guns include a Ruger Red Hawk revolver, a Savage 308, a Remington 30-06 and a Remington 35 lever action, along with mounted scopes.

If you have any information, call or text Crime Stoppers at 888-798-5900.
