SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - Four people face charges after 23 guns were stolen from Feeders Pet & Supply in Sikeston.

Two men and two juveniles were charged. 

Kendarius Young, 17, is charged with 2nd degree burglary.

Terrance Dozier, 21, is charged with possession of stolen property.

Capt. Jim McMillen with Sikeston DPS says around 12:30 Friday morning someone called 911 saying he/she saw people running away from Feeders Pet & Supply. 

Officer found the front door smashed and gun display cases smashed. 

Twenty-three guns had been stolen. 

Friday morning, DPS received a call from a Sikeston resident saying she found something suspicious in her trash can. 

That evidence led police to search several homes.

 Officers found two guns in one of the homes. 

That led to all the guns with 15 under the porch of one home. 

Officials credit those public tips with helping them track down the suspects.

"We say it all the time and we're really passionate about it is have the citizens call," said Capt. McMillen. "When they see something suspicious, or see something out of the ordinary, it may not be anything. But it may lead to 23 stolen guns too."

Capt. McMillen added stolen guns are quickly sold on the streets and can easily be moved across state lines.

"One gun is bad. I mean one gun could lead to a murder, but certainly 23 of them is a high priority that we're gonna jump on right away," said Capt. McMillen. "The last thing we want is any of these guns stolen from our community to be ended up in a gun crime."

Authorities will not release the names of the 15 and 16 year-old juveniles also charged in the case.
