St. Louis Police again reminding gun owners to Park Smart. A sales representative for Rhino Arms, a gun company, had her car broken into this weekend.
She parked her car in a lot around 1:30 Saturday morning in the 1400 block of Lucas Avenue. The next afternoon, she noticed the car's rear window had been broken. Thieves had opened her trunk and stolen, three handguns, 160 rounds of ammunition, and an AR-15 rifle.
Police continue to investigate the crime.
An East St. Louis man is headed back to prison after being found with a gun.
Willie Springer was found with an SKS rifle after running from an officer during a traffic stop. Springer's previous conviction made it illegal for him to own the weapon.
The investigation was conducted by the WAVE Task Force--which was assembled to combat violent crime in East St. Louis.
