Two people are in custody in connection to an ATF investigation in Knoxville. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were brought in after Knoxville Tactical in Powell was burglarized Sunday.
Officials say the suspects broke the front glass out of the store and stole an undetermined number of firearms. The initial report said 15 firearms were stolen, but the ATF says they’re working to determine the exact number missing.
Authorities say two suspects, Alexander Foye and Joel Frye, were arrested in possession of two of the missing guns and two vehicles that had been reported stolen. Investigators also found handwritten notes about Knoxville Tactical, Cross Roads Firearms and Topside Gun Warehouse. Two of those have been robbed in the last week.
Frye is facing theft charges. Foye was charged with theft and burglary.
