Man Indicted for Gun Shop Burglary

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A federal grand jury in Kansas City returned an indictment charging a man with stealing firearms from a gun shop.

According to court documents, Patrick Montufar, 19, of Kansas City, Kansas, is charged with one count of burglary of a licensed firearms dealer. On Oct. 24, 2023, Montufar allegedly stole nine pistols from Frontier Justice, a licensed gun dealer in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is investigating the case. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney David Zabel is prosecuting the case.

An indictment is merely an allegation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
