Police believe over 20 guns were taken during an early morning burglary at a Winder pawn shop.
According to Winder Police, the burglary occurred around 3:15 a.m. on Aug. 25 at Southeast Pawn located at 138 West Athens Street. Video surveillance showed one of the suspects walk up to the front window of the business and look inside.
"A moment later, a white Dodge Ram pickup drove into the front of the business," wrote Winder Police public information officer Chris Cooper in an email to media outlets. "Three additional suspects ran into the business behind the truck and began to steal multiple guns."
The burglars left the truck at the pawn shop and are believed to have fled the scene in a second vehicle. Police later determined the abandoned pickup truck had been stolen at an apartment complex in Atlanta Saturday night.
The 20 stolen guns include handguns and four long guns. The total value of the stolen weapons is estimated at $16,000. A complete inventory is still underway. Police believe some ammunition may have been taken as well.
"The Winder Police Department is actively investigating this incident and has already developed a couple of leads," Cooper added. "More information will be released as soon as it is available."
