Three suspects in the October theft of more than a dozen weapons from a Suffolk gun dealer were indicted this week.

They were among 30 people indicted on 81 total charges Monday.


Mary Louise Bannister, Chase Alan Brooks and Kendall Pittman were indicted on various charges related to the incident. A fourth suspect, Brian Christopher Campbell, was indicted last month.

Police say the four were involved in the theft of 15 rifles, shotguns and muzzleloaders from Dashiell’s Half-round Showroom on Holland Road in mid-October. The burglary attracted the attention of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which offered a reward for information leading to the arrest of those involved.

“We know that in many instances, stolen firearms end


up in the hands of violent criminals, who use them to commit additional crimes,” ATF Special Agent in Charge Edgar A. Domenech said at the time.

The arrests came after weeks of investigative work and several Crime Line tips, police said.
