Alabama Police Looking for Suspects in Gun Store Theft

July 14, 2016

Police in Tuscaloosa say several young men broke into a gun store and stole between 10 and 30 guns.

Police Capt. Brad Mason tells the Tuscaloosa News the break-in happened early in the morning on July 12. Mason said the men used a stolen van to break down the door of the store.

Mason said a witness told officers he heard a loud crash and then saw five or six men enter and leave the store and then drive away in a white vehicle.

Officers who responded to the scene noticed a white Chevrolet Express van nearby with the engine running, a damaged ignition switch and a damaged bumper.

Mason said the store owners are working to determine exactly how many guns were stolen.

Federal authorities are helping with the investigation.
