The sheriff's office said it is important for gun owners to copy down the serial number on their guns.

They said this could protect you in case your stolen gun was used in a crime and recovered by law enforcement if it was reported as stolen and not in your possession. 

The sheriff's office asked that if anyone has information on this crime to contact them at 660-727-2416.
