FORT WORTH, Texas -- Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms are investigating the theft of about two dozen handguns from a Fort Worth sporting goods store.
Police say Cheaper Than Dirt Outdoor Adventures was robbed around 5 a.m. Thursday.
The store owner told FOX 4's Adrian Arambulo that the thieves got away with about $10,000 worth of guns --- all of them handguns.
The owner said his business has been in the same location in the 2500 block of NE Loop 820 for nine years and this is only the second break-in and the first in five years.
The shop is equipped with security cameras and the theft was caught on tape.
The burglars could be seen using a crowbar to bust through the security bars and locks on the front door.
The owner said that they tried to get away with assault rifles, but couldn't get them off the wall because they were secured with cables.
The type of handgun stolen is manufactured by Springfield, a popular brand.
