Crimestoppers: high powered weapons stolen

WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) - Armed and dangerous, it's the only description of the burglars who busted through the door of a Wetumpka pawn shop and stole two fully loaded, high powered assault rifles. Now, police are trying to track down the suspects before it's too late.

It only took about 30 seconds for the suspect to walk up to Wetumpka Pawn, shatter the glass door and make off with two of the most dangerous weapons around.  Wetumpka Pawn owner Carl Price says the burglars were on a mission, which means Friday night's heist probably wasn't their first trip to the store. 

Price's employees, who live in an apartment attached to the pawn shop, heard the glass shatter, and even though they rushed into the store it was too late. 

Investigators say pawn shops are top targets for suspects searching for serious fire power.  Now, they're working with the store owners to ramp up security - giving them their ammunition against criminals.

The burglary is a hard financial hit for the pawn shop. They've only been open about eight months and  now they're spending money to replace the door, add security cameras and absorb the price of the guns which account for more than $2,000 alone.

If you have information on this case, call Crimestoppers at 215-STOP. You can remain anonymous and possibly earn a cash reward.
