It is part of a case that agency is investigating

A gun stolen from the Rural King store in Ocala several weeks ago has been recovered in Muncie, Indiana, officials say.

Ocala police said they received a call Wednesday from their counterparts in Muncie. That agency had recovered a handgun in a case it is investigating. The weapon is a Walther PK .380, one of a dozen guns stolen from Rural King, 2999 NW 10th St., the night of July 26.

So far, only two of the 12 stolen guns have been found, according to local authorities.

Three people — Carlos Eduardo Hampton, 22; his brother, 18-year-old Qwintin E. Augustus; and Jonathan Arthur Floyd, 21 — have been charged with armed burglary, grand theft of a firearm and criminal mischief in connection with the Rural King theft. Hampton and Augustus are from Muncie.

They were caught in Zephyrhills by Zephyrhills police after a Rural King there was burglarized and 15 guns were stolen. All 15 guns were found by the officers.

Local authorities are searching for a fourth individual who they believe is involved with the break-in and theft of the guns in the Ocala Rural King case.
