ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque business has replaced a veteran’s hunting bow that was stolen while he was serving in Afghanistan.

James Arent just got back Albuquerque after a year overseas. He says someone broke into his storage unit at Montgomery and Eubank and stole $5,000 worth of belongings including the bow.

After hearing about his story on KRQE News 13, Hit or Miss Archery Center decided to help.

“I wouldn’t be able to come to work every day, and walk through the store and get to do what i love if it weren’t for him doing what he is doing for us,” Neil Overbay said.

The store owner says Arent needed to be talked into accepting the bow, but has since been very grateful.
