WOODBRIDGE, Conn. (WTNH) — Woodbridge police are searching for suspects that drove a car into a storefront and stole multiple firearms Wednesday morning.
Just after 3:05 a.m., Woodbridge police responded to the Woodbridge Firearms Trading Post on Selden Street. Upon arrival, officers found a vehicle had been driven into the storefront so thieves could access the guns inside.
“The theft of property is never a good thing, but the theft of a firearm is obviously more disturbing,” said Sgt. Frank Cappiello of the Woodbridge Police Department.
“Putting guns like that in their hands where they’re non-traceable makes it a little bit worse,” said a man who lives nearby.
Woodbridge police say that the car used in the robbery was stolen, and there were multiple suspects in it. By the time officers arrived at the scene, the suspects had fled in a waiting getaway car, leaving the stolen car inside the store.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance footage from the store, and will release more detailed descriptions of the suspects soon.
If you witnessed this crime, or have any information that could help police in their investigation, you’re asked to call Woodbridge police at 203-387-2511.
