Burglars broke into a gun shop in Garden Grove overnight Thursday and police said they stole about 40 firearms.
Garden Grove Police Department officers replied at 12:16 p.m. at Whitten Sales at 12812 Valley View St. and saw that the store’s front door had been smashed, Garden Grove Police Sgt. Erick Ley said.
Ley said the store owner looked at his store via live surveillance footage of at least one suspect, but the suspects drove away from the scene in two separate vehicles prior to the officers’ arrival.
The thieves apparently stole the guns from a safe inside the store.
According to the police, the escape vehicles were described as a blue BMW and a silver BMW.
Anyone with information about this break-in is asked to call the Garden Grove Police Department at 714-741-5872.
