Police Fear Guns, Ammunition in Hands of Children; Ask Help Arsenal Stolen From Provo Store By JOAN GEYER In a weird-re-enactment of a burglary whicii last year resulted in an accidental fatal shooting, the Carpenter Seed Company was broken into late Saturday or early Sunday morning and $550 worth of guns and ammunition stolen. The strange thing about the i burglary is that not only was en-1 trance obtained the same way as a burglary 11 months ago, but left lying on the floor — also as occurred a year ago — were two shotguns and two .22 rifles with one loaded and cocked. Total value of the guns, knives and ammunition missing was about $550. Eleven months ago juveniles burglarized the establishment and a 12-year-old boy was shot and killed during illicit target practice which followed in the Provo foothills. Even more urgent than loss of the • guns, says Lieut LeGrande Baker of the Provo Police Department, is the fact that the guns are almost certainly in the hands of children — and anoher fatal accident may result. He said a trail of discarded cartons, with identifying serial numbers, indicates that the young burglars immediately began shooting in the east foothills. He said gunfire was heard early Sunday morning in Slate Canyon and east of Thorn's Gravel Pit, where a 12-year-old was accidentally fatally shot last year with guns stolen from the Carpenter Seed Company. Lieut. .Baker specifically urged parents to look around and see if their youngsters have in their possession either these guns or Remington .22 high-speed cartridges with the number R08C2B. The guns missing are as follows: An easily identifiable used Springfield .22 single-shot rifle with scope which has a blonde stock, zebra-stripped by a blow torch, recoil pad on butt, cutoff barrel with ramp front sight and chrome barrel which has not been blued; a new Winchester Model 61 pump hammerless.22.
