LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Police are searching for answers – and missing weapons – after thieves break into a gun show in Little Rock. The theft occurred overnight at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds, which is believed to be a well orchestrated incident.
The first weekend of January was full of activities for the exhibition center, where the first event of the season took place. “Our first event of the year was a weapons exhibition,” said Douglas White, the site’s president and general manager. The three-day firearms convention, which attracted a large crowd, took place in the trade fair’s industrial hall. “I would estimate thousands of people got through [in one day]”White said.
