DEM: Stolen bows may have been sold online

The Rhode Island Department of Enviornmental Management says 12 bows were stolen from a facility and may have been sold online.

Twelve bows were stolen during a break-in at a Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management facility and the agency says some of them may have been sold on Craigslist.

The DEM says the bows were stolen earlier this month. The bows are valued at about $180 each and may have been sold online by a Craigslist seller from West Warwick. Two have been recovered.

Among the bows that haven't been recovered are eight compound bows. Seven are brand new and were still in the original packaging when taken.

The bows aren't hunting bows. The equipment is used by the DEM's Division of Fish and Wildlife for education programs.

Anyone with information is asked to call the DEM's Division of Law Enforcement at 401-222-3070.
