17-year-old arrested in attempted gun store burglary


A Belvidere gun store is nearly broken into for the third time this month but this time police caught one of the suspects. 

A 17-year-old was arrested Wednesday night outside Big Linny Gun Shop. Officers say four suspects were found running from the store when they got there. Two suspects drove off in a red Monte Carlo while two others ran away. Police chased all of them but ended up only catching the teen who ran.

Last week a group of suspects broke into Big Linny's and stole guns. Then on Monday there was an attempted burglary at the store. It's unclear if the suspects from this latest burglary are connected to the other crimes.

If you have any information you're asked to call Belvidere Police or Boone County Crime Stoppers.
