Cornwall gun-and-tackle shop burgled – serial numbers of stolen airguns released

An airgun and fishing tackle shop in Truro has been burgled and suffered the loss of a number of airguns. The shop’s owners have released the serial numbers of the stolen property to help alert the shooting community.

Carnon Downs Garden Centre was burgled at some point between closing for the day on 25th May and opening again on 26th May, according to a Facebook post from the firm. UK Shooting News urges Facebook-using readers to share that post far and wide.

“None of the [air]guns had fill valves, many had missing magazines and all the Hawke scopes were without boxes and mounts,” said the shop’s management. This means that even in the hands of miscreants, the airguns will be impossible to operate.

As a licensed airgun seller, the shop will have been subject to the usual security requirements for a registered firearms dealer, including secure storage and an alarm.

“Guns were locked in cabinets and alarm system was switched on but as already said if someone is determined to get in they will,” the shop’s management said on Facebook in response to a question about security.

The missing airguns and scopes are listed below. Anyone coming across one or spotting one offered for sale should contact their local police force immediately.
