Up to 20 stolen guns are on the street after the burglary of a Beloit home earlier this week, and while police have made several arrests, Beloit Police Captain Bill Tyler says the fact that the weapons are missing is a big concern. "We tend to see them (stolen weapons) involved in very dangerous situations," says Taylor. "We really want to get a handle on that, and get those weapons recovered."
Police arrested five Beloit teens Wednesday in connection with the burglary and theft. That led to the recovery of the empty gun safe on Thursday, but none of the weapons. Police believe a 17-year-old from Janesville is also involved. "It's very concerning for us," says Tyler. "Stolen weapons tend to pass through a lot of hands, and those are very problematic for us."
