ADRIAN TOWNSHIP, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Two men have been arrested after the Lenawee County Sheriff's Office says they stole a shotgun from a Michigan sporting goods store two weeks ago.

Police say around 11 a.m., two male subjects entered Johnson's Sporting Goods on North Adrian Highway in Adrian Township. Once inside, one of the males distracted sales clerks while the second subject took a 12 gauge shotgun from the sales rack. The subject then checked to see if anyone was looking. When he determined no one could see him, he placed the shotgun down his pants and left the store.

The shotgun is described as a Remington model 870 12 gauge shotgun with a black stock.

As a result of several tips received by CrimeStoppers, the two suspects have been identified and are both in custody on unrelated charges. They should be charged later this week with the theft.
