Four suspects steal 20-plus firearms from gun range: police

Four suspects were caught on surveillance video breaking into an Illinois gun range with a stolen vehicle before taking nearly two dozen guns. They remain on the loose.

Police in Illinois are searching for four suspects who rammed a stolen vehicle into a gun range to gain entry, then proceeded to steal more than 20 firearms.

It happened around 3 a.m. Monday morning, according to FOX 32 Chicago. Oak Forest police responded to an alarm call at the Eagle Gun Range.

Surveillance video shows the thieves wearing stocking caps and masks inside the facility as they steal approximately 23 guns, officials said.

"Concerning, yes," customer Giovanni Magana told WLS. "They're gonna have a bunch of guys running around shooting, selling guns under the table, so it's scary, you know?"
