Orlando police recover 8 guns stolen from gun show, arrest 3 men

24 guns stolen from Fairgrounds Gun Show


ORLANDO, Fla. – Police have arrested three men after dozens of guns are stolen, but there are more suspects and stolen guns still on the street.

Orlando police said they have recovered eight of the guns stolen from the Fairgrounds Gun Show.

Surveillance video shows several juvenile suspects forcing their way into the gun show at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on the Fourth of July and making off with 24 firearms, police said.

Officers passed out fliers Friday in the Mercy Drive area looking for leads to recover the guns stolen.

Orlando police arrested at least two men Friday and potentially a third suspect who could be involved as well.

Quantavius Singleton, 22, and Sonny Thornton, 18, have been arrested in the case. Thornton was arrested over a week ago when they served a search warrant on his home, where they found a gun related to the robbery.

Orlando police have not confirmed how Deshawn Sims, 19, is linked to the case.
