Thieves drove a stolen truck into a Vernon gun shop and made off with five assault rifles, say RCMP.
The crooks used the Toyota pickup as a battering ram to smash through the front wall of Del Selin Gunsmith on 28th Street about 8 p.m. Sunday. They took five Czech SKS semi-automatic assault-style weapons, which look like AK 47s.
The thieves took off in a silver Chevy Optra sedan. Surveillance video shows it had a white driver's door and brown front fender on the driver's side. The B.C.
licence plate is 611 LWN.
An intruder alarm notified police. Officers determined the Toyota had been stolen a short time earlier from a neighbouring business.
They're unsure whether the culprits stole ammunition from the store.
