HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. — Nearly two dozen firearms were stolen Wednesday morning in a Harford County burglary.
Maryland State Troopers responded to the 2100 block of Pulaski Highway at around 5:15 a.m. for a report of a breaking and entering at a pawn shop.
Preliminary investigation reveals that suspects drove a stolen vehicle through the front doors of the store before breaking the glass storage area to the gun cases and stealing 23 weapons.
Ron Snyder, a spokesperson for Maryland State Police, said once guns are taken from the rightful owner it can be extremely difficult to retrieve which is why investigators are working so hard to get them back.
“ Anytime suspects enter a business and steal that many weapons there is concern what they will be used for who will end up with them how they will be distributed whether they will be sold utilized in other crimes that’s why our investigators are working diligently to ensure that this crime as solved as quickly as possible,” Snyder said.
Snyder said the thieves ended up getting away in two separate vehicles. Anyone with information can contact state police in the Bel Air Barrack at 410-879-2101.
