BIGGERS, AR (KAIT) -

A bait shop in Biggers is closed until further notice, after someone broke in, vandalized the store, and stole nearly all the merchandise.

Five Rivers Bait and Tackle, LLC shared photos with Region 8 News, showing their walls bare of merchandise and covered in explicit messages.

Due to the explicit nature of some of the graffiti, Region 8 News blurred some of the images.

Randolph County Sheriff Gary Tribble told Region 8 News his department is investigating the incident, and that they will file charges.

Tribble said the charges will involve at least five people, including juveniles, and several different incidents.

The owner of the store told Region 8 News they were able to recover roughly 85 percent of their merchandise, but all the money from the cash register is gone.

In a social media post, the store stated authorities caught those responsible. The Randolph County Sheriff's Office has not confirmed any arrests in the case. 

Five Rivers Bait and Tackle is located inside the old Biggers school building.
