Crime Stoppers: Stolen Guns Make Their Way to Coastal Bend

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Police are trying to warm up a cold case involving five suspects who stole more than 80 rifles from a College Station gun store back in December of 2011. Most of those weapons were recovered in Corpus Christi and Robstown.

It was just after 3 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, when burglars forced their way into The Great Texas Gun Company, located at Highway 21 east of Bryan, Texas, in rural Brazos County. Evidence at the scene indicated that five or more suspects were involved in the crime, and that they drove up and forced their way into the building.

Surveillance footage shows the suspects as they quickly grabbed 80 rifles and handguns, and then carried them out of the store through a hole in the wall. They then left the area in a vehicle.

If you have any additional information about this crime, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477. If the information leads to an arrest, it could earn you up to $1,000 in cash.

Additionally, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms has offered an additional $5,000 for information about this crime.
