JAMESTOWN – Jamestown Police are asking for the public’s help in finding over two dozen guns that were stolen from a gun shop in Columbus, Pa., and believed to have been sold and exchanged in Jamestown.
Several arrests have already been made in connection to the case.
City police say a 17-year-old Jamestown youth is being held for extradition to Pennsylvania for stealing an estimated 40 pistols from the gun shop on Saturday, Sept. 14.
Two others were arrested last week after police found them to be in possession of some of the guns that had been stolen. Officers responded to 152 Bowen St. around 9:50 p.m. Wednesday after several shots were believed to have been fired inside. Officers secured the home and found that 19-year-old Jahdiel Rivera and 21-year-old Omar Vera-Velazquez had both discharged several rounds from a pistol.
No one was injured in the shooting incident.
