SAPD Investigates Gun Store Burglary
The San Angelo Police Department is investigating an early morning “smash and grab” burglary at a local gun store.
Officers were dispatched to the ODIN Firearms Store in the 4100 block of S. College Hills Blvd. around 3:30 this morning for an active burglar alarm. Officers arrived and discovered someone had forced entry into the store, smashed a display case, and stole several handguns.
The incident was caught on store surveillance. Based on the surveillance video, alarm time, and Police response, the incident most likely occurred between 3:15-3:25 a.m. Investigators discovered nearby evidence that placed the suspect in the Wildewood Apartment Complex parking lot after he burglarized the store. Please see the surveillance pictures above.
The suspect appears to be a white or light complected Hispanic male wearing a camouflage uniform and hat, sunglasses, distinct shoes, and a black case affixed to his right hip.
Investigators are asking for the public’s help in keeping these stolen firearms off the streets. If you have any information about the suspect’s identity or whereabouts, please call Police Dispatch at (325) 657-4315.
