Projected budget shortfalls in Kansas have some Republican legislators weighing proposals to backtrack on tax-cutting policies championed by GOP Gov. Sam Brownback.
Authorities have posted a reward of up to $5,000 for help in solving this month’s theft of more than 100 firearms from a Salina business.
Salina police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced the reward from the ATF on Monday.
Employees of Cleve’s Marine and Sporting Goods discovered the burglary the morning of April 14. Salina police reported the stolen items included about 140 guns, 10 knives and several rounds of ammunition.
The total loss was estimated at $50,000 or more. The thieves are thought to have entered the store through a garage door and disabled the building’s alarm system.
The reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those who committed the burglary.
