Movie rifles stolen from Movie Madness
John Waynes Winchester is on the loose with William Holdens shotgun.
The two guns used in classic movies were stolen Tuesday afternoon from their display cabinet at Movie Madness, 4320 S.E. Belmont St.
Portland police said that at about 1:55 p.m., a very un-movie-starish man in his 30s or 40s went into the store and spent about 25 minutes before he allegedly broke into the locked cabinet and took the two guns.
One gun was a Winchester rifle used by Wayne in the 1962 film, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. The other is a shotgun used by Holden in the 1969 film, The Wild Bunch.
The suspect is a bald, stocky white man wearing a T-shirt, shorts and a backpack. He rode away on dark mountain bicycle.
Criminalists from the Forensic Evidence Division are collecting fingerprints and looking for other evidence in the theft.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
