Burglars Target Vendors at Rutledge Flea Market

The Rutledge Flea Market wonít officially open until the weekend of March 12. Unfortunately for a few dozen vendors at the facility, burglars got a special sneak peak at their inventory in January.

Manager Bob Sands indicated that 20 to 25 buildings were broken into sometime on Sunday, January 17th.

ďWe had been there on Saturday and everything was fine,Ē said Sands. ďBut on Monday evening the caretaker discovered the lock at the front gate had been cut.Ē

The burglar(s) gained entrance to the vendor sites by cutting locks on doors. At least one door was broken to gain entrance and windows were also broken to access at least one other site.

Sands said he is still compiling a list of items taken, but noted that many vendors had not even traveled to the site yet because of bad weather. He also noted that most vendors do not store valuable items at the facility during the off season.

However at least one vendor reported a number of showcases and antiques were stolen while their remaining inventory was ransacked by the culprits.

The case is being investigated by the Knox County Sheriffís Department. Anyone that may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area during the proposed time frame is asked to contact the sheriffís department at 660-397-2186.
