ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Sumter County Sheriff's Office showed us more than a dozen stolen guns they recovered.These assault weapons, shotguns, rifles, and pistols were stolen from homes in Americus and Sumter county.    

They were recovered in Columbus and Atlanta. Investigators believe a ring of five suspected gang members stole the guns for money to buy drugs. They're still looking for the suspects, but their glad the guns are off the streets.

"You hear about all these shootings and stuff and just worry about this kind of stuff because you don't want it in the wrong hands," said Sheriff Pete Smith.

Investigators are searching for 19-year old Taros Holloman and 18-year old Omar Barron. They did not name any other suspects. If you have helpful information, or you believe any of the stolen guns might belong to you, you're asked to call the Sumter County Sheriff's Office.
