VIDEO: Gone in 40 Seconds! Thieves Steal 48 Handguns from Indy Gun Store

Forty-eight guns in 40 seconds.

That’s what three perps were able to make off with last Sunday morning in a smash-and-grab burglary at Beech Grove Firearms in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Greg Burge, the owner of the store, spoke to WISH-TV about the incident.

“What I can say about the investigation is three agencies, Beech Grove, IMPD and ATF, are doing phenomenal work. I am very pleased at the direction the investigation has taken so far,” said Burge, who is retired from Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

“The investigation is going in the right direction, and I predict it will have an outcome that will be, the community, society and me, the business owner, will be pleased with,” he added.

Altogether, Burge estimates that the suspects nabbed $30,000 in firearms and accessories. Handguns only. No long guns were stolen.

The damage to the store, after the trio plowed a stolen truck through the front of the building, is somewhere in the neighborhood of $60,000, according to the former officer.

Investigators announced that they arrested a 16-year-old on Monday, who was connected to the carjacking of the truck.

No other arrests have been confirmed yet. Many, including Burge, are worried about where those stolen guns may end up.

As Burge laid it out, “But, 48 handguns definitely went under that door at 3:14 a.m., carried out by these misguided individuals and set out into the world for God only knows to do what.”

Here’s to hoping those stolen guns are recovered and those involved are brought to justice.

    See how easy it is to get free handguns in America! We need a law banning something like this from ever happening again.
    It appears that we should be able to fire at anyone wearing a “hoodie”. They are up to no good!

    $90k lost when $4,000.00 in jersey barriers strategically placed could have prevented it. What is wrong with people?

    You can almost guarantee these handguns are headed to Chicago. There is a robust illegal traffic in arms from Indiana to Chicago. Incidents like this are an excellent example of why local solutions are inadequate to tackle national problems. State and local governments can take common sense steps to deal with gun safety and violence but ultimately, Washington will have to act, by phone and by pen.

      But your solution is to get rid of guns, as opposed to cleaning up Chicago.
      80% of Chicago violent crime is done by KNOWN repeat offenders.
      So yeah, lets not lock up criminals, lets make law abiding folk a target.
