ASHDOWN, Ark. (AP) - A trial date is set for an Ashdown school teacher charged with stealing shotguns belonging to the school’s skeet shooting club.

The Texarkana Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1J1Ym3V ) that 41-year-old Terry Simmons is to go on trial Oct. 19 on two counts of theft of property for allegedly selling or trading the shotguns at a pawn shop while he was coach and sponsor of the skeet club.

Simmons has pleaded not guilty.

The guns were among 10 used by the club and kept in a safe at the Little River County Sheriff’s Office. Just three guns were in the safe when a new coach took over the club in late 2014 and asked for an inventory. Authorities say Simmons later provided three more guns that he said had been at his home.
