Guns Stolen from Farm and Home Supply
Guns Stolen from Farm and Home Supply

Springfield Police are looking for someone they say broke into Farm and Home Supply on North Dirksen early Monday and stole two handguns.

Reports indicate someone cut the fence line along Dirksen and used a sledge hammer to break in through the back door. Officers found the glass protecting the gun display shattered, with multiple guns scattered on the ground. The suspect was caught on surveillance leaving the store with two handguns plus the sledgehammer he used to break in.

Neither store employees nor police could identify the suspect. He’s described as a mask wearing man somewhere between 5’4″ and 5’7″ inches tall.
