SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Thousands of dollars worth of guns, jewelry and other items were stolen from vendors attending a local trade show at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds.

It happened some time between Friday night and Saturday morning after the first night of the event had ended.

Mountainside Outfitters, a shop based in Rogersville, shared an update of what happened on its social media page.

Owner, Dave Metzger says three one-of-a-kind guns were stolen from the site. He also says another vendor had weapons, gold and jewelry stolen.
