Masked thieves were caught on video breaking into a gun shop near Detroit.

The owner says they made off with several weapons.

It all unfolded at SP Guns-N-Ammo in Southgate just before 3:00 am on Saturday.

The owner says the thieves cut the phone line and the power to the building to try to get around the alarm system.

But the alarm was on battery power, so the police were called.

Before authorities could get there, the thieves stole 7 long guns worth around $5,000.

The owner says he called around to other gun shops. He says many of them say they've been broken into as well under similar circumstances.
