Roosevelt police and federal investigators are trying to find whoever stole 18 semi-automatic handguns during a break-in at a hardware store.
During the early morning hours of June 23, a man forced his way into Stewart's Ace Hardware at 245 W. U.S. Highway 40, said Roosevelt police detective Pete Butcher. Surveillance footage of the crime shows the man going through the store, grabbing the semi-automatic handguns of various makes and models.
"It appears that it was pre-planned. He goes in to get certain items," Butcher said.
