Last Tuesday, four men smashed the front door of Southern Staple Supply in the 7000 block of John Carpenter Freeway, stole 30 air guns and an air compressor worth a combined $14,000, then drove away in a white van. You can see the video here
All four suspects are described as Hispanic males. Three had their faces covered. One is wearing a silly hat, as you can tell just before they knock the surveillance camera aside. Call Det. Ricardo Rodriguez, 214-670-6047 or 214-670-6225 if you know who they are.
