SPARTA, Mo. (AP) – Christian County authorities are investigating the theft of guns, ammunition and uniforms from a small southwest Missouri police station.

Sheriff Brad Cole says someone broke into the Sparta police station early Friday by pushing an air-conditioning unit out of a window. Sparta has not had a police force since December, when the police chief resigned after being criticized for shooting a caged dog.

City leaders told the Springfield News-Leader in January that the city needs its own police force and will try to hire a chief and one or two other officers.

The sheriff’s department is patrolling Sparta for now.
