Thieves Drive SUV Through Building To Burglarize Tulsa Gun Store
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa Police are looking for two men they say crashed through a gun store and stole more than a dozen AR-15 rifles.
Officers said two burglars were in a Chevy Trailblazer when they backed into two office spaces around 4 a.m. and plowed inside of Action Arms at 54th and Mingo.
They said the burglars grabbed a bunch of guns, including 12 to 15 AR-15 rifles and loaded up the SUV.
Both burglars left in the vehicle that was found abandoned not far from the gun store.
Officers said they believe the two men moved the guns from the Trailblazer to another vehicle and took off.
Corporal Chris Butterfield said it's scary knowing so many high-powered rifles are on the street illegally.
"Very dangerous in the wrong hands and worth a lot of money, so, they're probably out there trying to sell them," he said.
The owner told police he has been hit before but nothing quite like this.
