Police in Houston, Texas are looking for “about ten suspects” after this group used a Ford Super Duty to rip down the door of a local gun shop and then rob the place.
Update 03/03/16: At least three of the suspects have been arrested, according to NBC News.
Here’s camera footage from the storefront:
And here’s an angle from inside:
CrimeStopHouston is saying that these suspects did indeed make off with several firearms, which you can see pretty clearly in the video.
The weapons were apparently dumped into “possibly” a Chevy Traverse SUV about a block from this gun shop, Carter’s Country Guns And Ammo, on South Wilcrest Drive and made off with in “an unknown direction of travel.”
Hopefully the ridiculously deep crew these guys were running with ends up being their downfall. The authorities have got to be able to find at least one of these people, right?
“I’m very shocked, and I’m very stunned this could happen to these people,” store customer Robert Sarabia told KHOU. “You wouldn’t think this could happen in our neighborhood. I live right across the way. I’ve heard of nothing like this before.”
But Robert Elder, Special Agent in Charge with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms (ATF) Houston Field Division, said; “These types of crimes are becoming more prevalent in the Houston area.”
KHOU reports that that local police and the ATF are collaborating to find these guys. Meanwhile cops are offering “up to $5,000 for information leading to the charge and/or arrest of the suspect(s) in the case.”
You can narc anonymously by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477), going to www.crime-stoppers.org or texting TIP610 plus the information to CRIMES (274637).
