Dinwiddie Sporting Goods Target of Thieves

The Richmond Times Dispatch reported that for the second time in five weeks, thieves have broken into the Dinwiddie Sporting Goods store and stolen numerous handguns. The latest theft occurred Sunday about 12:25 a.m. at the store at 7812 Boydton Plank Road. Like the earlier break-in on Oct. 23, the intruders entered by peeling back the sheet-metal building's exterior siding, said Dinwiddie County Sheriff's Capt. William Knott. According to Knott, the thieves took eight pistols of assorted calibers.

Knott said it has not been determined whether the same group of thieves was involved. With Sunday's burglary, more than 100 guns have been stolen in the past eight months from shops in Dinwiddie, Hanover County (Greentop) , Colonial Heights (Dance's Sporting Goods) and Chesterfield County (Bob Moates).
