SMITHS STATION, AL (WTVM) - An East Alabama gun shop has been broken into for the second time in the last few months.

The owners of Flat Iron Arms say the surveillance video from today is almost identical to what happened here not too long ago. 

It happened around 4 o'clock this morning when footage shows a truck barreling through the front door of the store.

The swift suspects get out of the vehicle and come inside , both masking their face ,one dressed in camouflage the other in a dark hoodie.

“We are pretty sure it’s the same people they just came back to finish the job they didn’t do last time," says one of the owners Kristie Stariha.

In October, a similar situation went down at the same gun shop. Owners say suspects backed into the entrance  just like today.

Both times the suspects got away with nothing of value , but today owners say they knew where they were going as video shows them heading to the back where a safe holding guns is located. 

  Stariha tells News Leader 9's Parker Branton that last time it took about two weeks for the store to be repaired. The store is closed as cleanup is underway and the owners say they're looking into new security measures to protect their store.

On Oct. 15, store owners Rodney and Kristie Stariha told News Leader 9 they heard the alarms go off at the store. When they arrived, they found shattered glass and smashed bricks, while security footage confirmed an unidentified driver backed a vehicle right into the front of the store. 

The Starihas also said the suspects from the October incident only got away with empty boxes, since they keep their merchandise secured and locked away from the store's front counters.

Stay with News Leader 9 as any investigations into the attempted burglary develop.
