Armed robbers struck the Lion's Den adult bookstore early Thursday morning.
BUCKHORN, Mo. (July 2, 2009) — Sheriff’s deputies continue to investigate an early Thursday morning armed robbery at the Lion’s Den adult bookstore just wast of the Waynesville city limits.

Many details of the incident remain unclear, according to Sheriff J.B. King, but he confirmed that the bookstore was robbed about 4 a.m. and multiple people have been taken into custody. King said the first two people were arrested shortly after 7 a.m. and others were apprehended about 8:30 a.m.

Waynesville and St. Robert police officers assisted with locating the suspects, King said.

No charges have yet been filed, King said, and no names have been released.

“We have a couple of people that we are talking to and we have reservations on what part they may or may not have played so we are taking life slow on this one,” King said. “We’ve got a couple of things we don’t quite understand.”

King said he couldn’t confirm early reports that the people who entered the store were women, but he said women were involved in the incident. Only money was taken from the store and nobody was hurt, he said.

“Women were involved. Exactly what role who played what and where, I don’t know,” King said. “The investigation is continuing, so charges could be pending, but we don’t know what yet.”

The amount of money taken wasn't immediately available.
