Chatham-Kent police are on the hunt for a gun thief.
Sometime yesterday between noon and 4 p.m., someone broke into a Marlborough Street residence in Blenheim and made off with two muzzle loader guns.
These are modern-day muzzleloaders, not old-fashioned flintlocks. Police report the CVA Optima Pro 50 gauge muzzleloader and CVA Kodiak 50 gauge muzzleloader, both camouflage in colour, are worth an estimated $1,600.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Bob McNear at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-436-6600 ext. 87150. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.
