The Osage County Sheriff’s Office has reported the arrest of a suspect in last week’s two attempted burglaries of a gun store near Lyndon.

Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn reported today that Randy Moore, 66, Shawnee, was arrested on charges in connection with the attempted burglaries on April 24 and April 27 at Sports Mart, 24131 S. US 75 Highway, Lyndon. During both incidents, officers responded to a business alarm at that location and discovered damage to exterior glass.

The sheriff reported in a press release today that during the investigation it was learned two other Lyndon businesses, Bailey and Sons and Harrison Shooter Supply, were also damaged, and Moore is a suspect in those incidents.

Moore was arrested Friday on charges of criminal damage to property, criminal discharge of a firearm, attempted burglary and criminal threat, and was held on $250,000 cash or surety bond. He appeared in Osage County District Court Monday to face formal charges and his bond was reduced to $100,000.
