Thieves caught on camera ramming truck into gun store


Police in Florida are looking for information on thieves who were caught on a surveillance camera at a gun shop Sunday, stealing firearms and ammunition after ramming a truck into the store, in a 31-second heist.

The surveillance footage of the robbery was released by the Zephyrhills, Florida Police Department on Monday, along with a tweet asking for the public’s help:

Need public’s help solving burglary at Sunshine State Armory at 2:15AM on 4/9/17. Call ZPD at (813) 780-0050 w/info. 

The truck rammed the front of the Sunshine State Armory on Sunday at around 2 a.m. The department reported at least three suspects stole an “unknown amount of firearms and ammunition” before leaving the scene.

The truck was found in the woods about a mile away. The thieves had set it on fire and fled.  They left ammunition in the vehicle, which exploded, so fire officials reportedly just let it burn out.

The subjects are still at large. Police are offering a $2,500 reward for any information that helps them make an arrest.
