The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department is asking for information regarding suspicious activity over the weekend at a Tomahawk gun store.

According to the incident report, deputies responded to an alarm on Friday morning at Staton's General Store. Deputies also responded to the alarm again late Saturday night.

At 3:24 am on Friday, deputies arrived on scene and found the building had been forcibly entered. Oneida County Deputies along with a K9 officer from the Three Lakes Police Department assisted in checking the area.

On Saturday at 9:30 pm an alarm sounded again and when a deputy and trooper arrived minutes later a witness who was parked nearby said he had just saw a man crawl out of a window.

Numerous Deputies from Lincoln and Oneida County, Troopers from the Wisconsin State Patrol and a Tomahawk Police Officer assisted in forming a perimeter as a K9 from the Lac Du Flambeau Police Department tracked through the woods but law enforcement was hindered by blowing snow and extreme temperatures.

Deputies have collected evidence from the scene and are continuing their investigation but so far it does not appear anything was taken during either incident.

During a burglary in October of 2012 numerous guns were stolen.

If you have any information on this break in, or saw any suspicious activity around the business early Friday morning you are asked to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 715-453-5747 or 715-536-6272. Callers may also call Crime Stoppers of Lincoln County at 715-536-3726.
