Police: Duo steals several guns from Port City Guns & Ammo


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police are searching for two suspects they say stole several guns from inside Port City Guns & Ammo after an alarm alerted officers of a break-in there early Sunday.

Wilmington Police say just before 3:30 a.m., officers responded to the business at 5745 Oleander Drive after an alarm went off when they say the two suspects broke the front glass door.

The front metal door to the store was open when officers got to the scene, so K-9 units searched the area for suspects. Police say the owner of the business arrived soon after, noting that three long guns and four handguns were stolen from inside.

They say the suspects spray-painted a camera outside, but were spotted putting guns into backpacks inside. Officers say the two men were wearing long-sleeved shirts, jeans and baseball hats with their faces covered at the time of the crime.
