Burglars Smash Into a Pawn Shop to Steal Firearms

At approximately 1:30a.m. Thursday morning, three or four men broke into a pawn shop in east Houston. Then men used a white pickup truck to run over the gate and crash into the building housing the Harrisburg Pawn Shop.

According to police, at least two of the men stole firearms from the pawn shop.

The robbers fled the scene in the white pickup and a black Dodge Durango that was parked nearby as a getaway car. The men are currently on the run and considered armed.

The owner of Harrisburg Pawn Shop is currently going through inventory to determine what firearms were stolen.

Harris County Precinct 6 deputy constables are asking anyone with tips or information to call 713-274-3400.
