Thieves Disabled Alarm System in Theft of Hundreds of Guns

Pennsylvania sporting goods store fell victim to forced retail theft when alarm system was disabled before thieves pried open front door


WESTFIELD, Pa. (AP) - More than 100 guns were stolen from a Pennsylvania sporting goods store after the thieves apparently disarmed an alarm system, pried open the front door and smashed glass display cases.

Authorities posted a $5,000 reward Tuesday for information about the weekend theft at Ackley and Sons Sporting Goods. Owner Jeff Treadwell said most of the stolen weapons were handguns.
