Ironton police will spend today looking for clues as to who robbed C&S Guns on Second Street early this morning.

"Some guy driving by saw a man walking in that area with several guns and called police," Akers said. "He broke out the door glass entered the building and then forced open another door to get inside."

Akers said possibly six handguns were taken. The suspect is described as being approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, 140 pounds, wearing a gray sweat suit, possibly with a hood.
