Thieves drive truck into pawn shop, steal $16K in guns

Posted: Updated:

Winder police need the public's help finding suspects who drove a truck into the front of a local pawn shop and made off with $16,000 in guns, including a semi-automatic rifle.

Police said the suspects ran into the shop after a stolen white Dodge Ram was driven through the front window around 3:15 a.m. on Sunday.

The burglary happened at Southeast Pawn at 138 West Athens St. The suspects left the truck at the store and fled in a second unknown vehicle. Winder police say the truck was reported stolen from Atlanta.

The owners are still checking inventory, but they believe at least 20 guns were taken.

Winder police spokesman Chris Cooper said detectives are actively investigating leads.
