“A Kennewick [WA] couple arrested earlier this year for allegedly operating a meth lab were jailed again this week for stealing a gun from a Richland hardware store,” tri-cityherald.com reports. “Two other Kennewick men also were arrested in connection with theft, said Richland police Officer Erica Tungesvik. The theft from Ace Hardware, 103 Keene Road, was reported to police Sunday.” Am I reading this wrong? Was the first theft unrelated to the second? There is another Ace Hardware store in Richland. And other non-Ace hardware stores in that meth-lab-plagued locale. But one thing’s for sure: in some parts of the country, Ace is your helpful handy firearms place.
