BUFORD - A pickup truck smashed through a Buford business Sunday morning, followed by suspects taking rifles and pistols from the store.

Security video at Dead Center Indoor Gun Range, located at 1759 Buford Highway, showed a full-size gray Dodge truck with a hard-shell camper top smash through a wall and window, according to a Gwinnett County Police press release.

The suspects then went into the store and took the weapons. The truck was seen leaving the front parking lot and driving north on Buford Highway, police said.

The business is between Buford Drive/Ga. 20 and South Lee Street.

Police were alerted to the incident by an alarm from the business at 5:15 a.m.

Upon arrival, officers found “a heavily damaged front wall with a large hole leading into the business,” the press release states.

Gwinnett Police said they can’t release the video yet as detectives are reviewing it.

Authorities are looking for a total of five suspects.
