COLUMBUS, Ind. — A Columbus gun store was burglarized overnight, with thieves making off with firearms including several assault rifles.
A passerby noticed at about 6:30 a.m. that glass had been broken in the front door of Peddler Firearms, 1630 Home Avenue.
According to the business owner, long guns were taken from the store. The firearms were secured in the business, however, the suspects cut the locks to gain access to the weapons.
Columbus Police Department is investigating the theft and is especially interested in the high-caliber assault weapons.
“We are deeply committed to removing these stolen assault weapons from our streets. Weapons of this sort can be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands”, said Lt. Matt Myers, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department.
