Bonnie and Clyde guns to be auctioned in Missouri

2 guns used by Bonnie and Clyde during time in Missouri to be auctioned in Kansas City By The Associated Press

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) ' Bidders will get a chance later this month to buy two weapons once owned by Bonnie and Clyde.

A tommy gun and a 12-gauge 1897 Winchester shotgun that were used by the infamous outlaw couple will go up for auction in Kansas City on Jan. 21.

The Joplin Globe reports ( ) that the weapons were among those seized during a raid of Bonnie and Clyde's apartment in Joplin on April 13, 1933. Until recently, the guns were displayed at the Springfield Police Museum.

The guns are owned by the great-grandchildren of Mark Lairmore, a Tulsa, Okla., man who was a police detective at the time of the raid. They say their great-grandfather was given the guns by a police officer who was involved in the Joplin raid.
