CHESTERFIELD, MO (KKCO) The Cat 5 company sells knives, vests, holsters, pouches and other tactical accessories. A sales receipt shows Holmes purchased about $300 worth of gear in early July.
The company's chief operating officer says they process thousands of orders a day. He says military and law enforcement personnel are their main customers.

"We were all shocked and appalled that he would have used our gear for those purposes. It was a startling discovery, to say the least, especially given the recency," says Andrew Hoefener, Cat 5 Chief Operating Officer.
