More than 20 guns stolen in Winder burglary

By The Associated Press
WINDER - Winder police say burglars drove a truck through a pawn shop window and stole more than 20 guns Sunday.

Investigators say the burglary happened around 3:15 Sunday morning. A surveillance camera recorded one suspect walk up to the store's window and look inside shortly before a white Dodge Ram crashed into it.

Police say three suspects ran inside after the truck and stole more than 20 weapons. Authorities say one Bushmaster semi-automatic rifle was also stolen in the burglary.

Investigators say they're still taking inventory at the store and they believe ammunition was also stolen.

Police say the truck the suspects used to break the window was stolen from an Atlanta apartment complex and was left at the scene. Police say the burglars likely had a second getaway vehicle.
