ATHENS, Ala. (WAAY) - Police are looking for three people who demolished a gun store entrance and made off with rifles and pistols.


Athens police said around 2 a.m. Friday three people backed a stolen truck into the doors of Craig's Guns and Tactical on Highway 72. The burglars then entered the store and stole several weapons.


Police Chief Floyd Johnson said the thieves took three AR-15 rifles, a bolt-action rifle and 20 pistols.
Johnson said the truck used to hit the building was stolen in Madison County. It has been recovered about 5 miles from the gun store and investigators are processing it for evidence.


Store president Craig Brown said "the guns they stole where maybe $15 to $20,0000. The damage to the building and to the inventory is going to be far, far more than that."

I remember the same thing happened at Greentop sporting goods back in the late 80's. They rammed some kind of vehicle into the back wall of the store. They were caught and all weapons recovered I believe.
