A 53-year-old Festus man recently reported the theft of three firearms from his home in the 400 block of South Fourth Street. However, the man said he is not sure when the thefts occurred, Festus Police Chief Tim Lewis said.
The man said he noticed the firearms missing on Aug. 2, but he did not report the theft to Festus Police until about 3 p.m. Aug. 4, Lewis said.
“He is missing two rifles and one pistol,” Lewis said. “He noticed them missing Aug. 2, but had last seen them seven to 10 days before that.”
Lewis said the guns were valued at $1,500. As of Aug. 6, the guns had not been recovered, Lewis said.
He asks anyone with information about the theft to call Festus Police at 636-937-3646.
