Around 60 more guns are in the hands of criminals after an early morning burglary at Shooters Station off of SH 105 West. Owner Danny Benois said about 12 shotguns were taken and the rest were handguns.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s patrol units responded to an alarm call at that location around 4:40 a.m. Monday. When they arrived, the thieves had already made forced entry, taken their loot and fled.

Benois said the building has no windows and only a front and back door, which makes it pretty secure. The thieves spent an estimated 30 minutes cutting into the metal front door and breaking the glass to get inside. Benois believes the fog helped them because passersby probably could not see them from the road as they would most nights.
Security video, he said, showed what appeared to be two men who entered the store and emptied a pair of display cases containing more popular brands, such as Glock, Kimber, H&K and SDI.
Benois said he believes the more popular guns were chosen because they will fetch more money on the street.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division is conducting a follow-up investigation.
