If someone approaches you wanting to sell guns, please contact your local law enforcement agency. Possession of a stolen gun is a felony and could leave you in a position to prove you did not steal the gun and prove you’re innocent from a crime.
It’s extremely important for gun owners to copy down the serial number on their gun(s). This will be beneficial when you report your gun(s) stolen to law enforcement, so they can enter the stolen gun into the system. If your stolen gun is ever used in a crime and later recovered by law enforcement this could protect you knowing the gun was stolen and not in your possession when the crime occurred.
If you or someone you know has information about this crime please contact the Clark County Sheriff’s office at phone number 660-727-2416 or fax number 660-727-2445
Thank you for your continuous support in helping keep Clark County safe and making it a great place to live and raise our children!
