SWANSEA, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Two thieves were caught on surveillance cameras allegedly stealing guns from Rural King in Swansea, Illinois Monday night.
Shortly before 11 p.m. Monday, the two men in masks could be seen on the security footage breaking out the glass on the front door.
Police raced to the Rural King and arrived within a minute of the store's alarm sounding, but by then it was too late.
The suspects were then in and out of the store in forty seconds, carrying away a bag of handguns.
Police worry that the stolen guns will end up in the wrong hands, particularly those of people who normally are not able to buy a weapon.
The ATF is assisting Swansea Police with the investigation.
