On Tuesday, March 1, 2016, at approximately 4:30 a.m., about 10 suspects broke into a gun store located in the 11800 block of South Wilcrest Drive in Houston, TX. The suspects used a chain tied to a pickup truck to pull off the front doors of the business. Upon entering the building, they ransacked the store causing extensive damage to the property. The suspects used a hammer to break the glass cases that stored the handgun and took several rifles off the rack. The suspects left this location with the firearms and exchanged vehicles approximately one block away. The suspect fled the second location in an unknown direction of travel, in a possible late model Chevrolet Traverse SUV.
