Posted September 23, 2013
Fayetteville, N.C. — Cumberland County investigators will set up command posts in the Grays Creek community Tuesday as they continue to search for high-powered weapons and a cache of ammunition stolen last week from a home in the area.
The homeowner noticed on Sept. 17 that a semi-automatic handgun, an assault rifle and two 9mm semi-automatic rifles, along with thousands of rounds of ammunition, had been taken, authorities said Monday.
Investigators plan to set up a command post to gather tips and answer questions at a BP gas station and convenience store at the intersection of Chickenfoot and Marrocco Roads from 8 to 11 a.m. Tuesday and at a Food Lion at the intersection of N.C. Highway 87 and Sandhill Road from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500.
