Thieves take guns from Kevin's in Thomasville

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Investigators in Thomasville are also asking for the public's help to locate several stolen guns.

Police responded to a burglar alarm at Kevin's Outdoor Apparel around 5:40 Sunday morning.

Crooks pried open a side door, broke a glass showcase, and stole at least five Beretta guns.

Investigators say the owner is still taking an inventory to see if any other guns or merchandise was taken.

"We just don't want guns, especially guns they have been gotten through illicit means, getting out in the community by way of more illicit means. Whether these guns are going to be sold on the street to other people who are not allowed to have them because of their age or because of their criminal background or just not registering these guns," said Detective Louis Schofill.

Investigators say repairing the damage could cost as much if not more than the stolen guns.
