PASCO COUNTY, FL (WFLA) – Burglary suspects took 25 different firearms from an armory in Pasco County, according to the Pasco County Sherif’s Office.

The Grey Wolf’s Armory was burglarized early Sunday morning. According to PCSO, three suspects wearing hooded sweatshirts and gloves knocked a hole in the east side of the business to get inside. Deputies said that the side of the armory is obscured by hedges. The suspects also broke the exterior lights.

The armory has an alarm, but it’s never been activated.

Detectives said that once the burglars got inside, they crawled and ducked to avoid cameras and motion detectors.

Surveillance video captured three men going through the wall shortly after 3 a.m.

“They were able to elude the internal sensors, and motion sensors and they made off  with a bunch of hand guns and three rifles,” Webb said.

He said it only took them four minutes to do the job. “Got out of my car, realized something didn’t look right. Turned around, saw the rubble in the grassy area behind shop and realized that somebody had gotten in again,” he said.

Back in March, Webb caught a person robbing the store. In that incident, the thief only made off with a hand gun.

He believes the same burglar may have brought back help for this most recent heist.

“They attacked the same spot on the wall that they had gotten in through the first time, after it had been repaired. Unfortunately for them, it took them a lot longer to get in this time because we had reinforced the spot they damaged the first time,” he said.

Other businesses in the area don’t have surveillance cameras. Pasco detectives and ATF agents continue to investigate the burglary.
