Thousands of bullets stolen during weekend gun show

August 7, 2018

LEXINGTON, S.C. – Investigators with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department estimate more than 100,000 rounds of ammunition were stolen during gun and knife show this weekend.


“We responded to the Jamil Temple parking lot Saturday morning after several thefts were called in,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Several people had items stolen from their trailers parked overnight Friday. Each victim was part of the event and storing merchandise in the trailers.”


Ammunition stored in bags, cans or cases was stolen from two trailers, Koon said. Based on information victims provided to detectives, more than 100,000 rounds of ammunition is missing.


“Five firearms were also stolen from one of the trailers,” Koon said. “They’ve all been entered into a national database as stolen.”


Koon said investigators have collected potential evidence from some of the trailers and other items left behind. He urged anyone has information about the thefts to call Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.Anonymous tips on this case can also be shared with Crimestoppers in the following ways:
