Police: At least a dozen AR-15 rifles stolen after SUV plows through south Tulsa gun shop
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) - Police are looking for two people who stole at least a dozen guns from a south Tulsa gun store Friday morning.
Officers responded around 4 a.m. to the Action Arms near East 51st Street and South Mingo Road after a burglary alarm was set off. Police say there was significant damage to the strip center that the store is in when they arrived. It appeared that a vehicle drove into a building on the south side of the strip center, went through two office spaces, and drove through a wall into Action Arms, according to police.
Surveillance video showed two men exit a Chevrolet Trailblazer inside the gun store. Police say they could be seen loading several weapons into the SUV. They then got back in the vehicle and drove back out of the building before heading into an industrial area off 54th Street.
Police say they found the SUV parked nearby, but they believe the suspects had another vehicle at that location and transferred all the stolen weapons into it before making their getaway.
The store employee told police that the suspects stole at least 12 to 15 AR-15 rifles. Police say it doesn't appear any pistols were stolen.
Officers say the suspects were two males wearing dark clothing, but they did not immediately have any more information.
