MORGANTOWN — Local Boy Scouts need the public’s help to find a dozen rifles stolen from their camp.

Mountaineer Area Council Boy Scouts CEO and Scout Executive Jeff Doty said that volunteers were last at the shed at Camp Mountaineer on Sunday evening, May 14. By the time another volunteers returned May 16, they discovered someone broke in.

The suspects took a safe that had 10 22-caliber rifles and four pellet rifles, Doty said. The rifles were Savage Mod Mark 1 G 22 Long Rifle single shot, birch stock with serial numbers: 1171782, 1280641, 1280644, 1280645, 1280646, 1280647, 1280648, 1280649, 1280650, and 128065.

The council is asking for the public’s help, and if people see one of these guns on an online site or in a store, they are asked to contact the council or the West Virginia State Police.
