Police continue to hunt gun store thieves

POLICE have released images detailing the extraordinary lengths thieves used to break into a Perth gun store last week.

They believe about 100 guns, mainly handguns, were stolen in the break-in, which occurred at Claremont Firearms on Erceg Road in Yangebup last Thursday night.

Unknown offenders entered via a neighbouring business located on Cutting Way, using expensive specialist cutting equipment.

The person operating the equipment would need to have prior experience.

Detectives are seeking information regarding the movements of a stolen white Toyota Hilux, WA registration 1GPM 241.

The car was stolen from Cockburn Central on Monday November 11 and was found burnt out in North Lake early Friday morning.

Anyone with information or dash-cam vision regarding this burglary, or who saw or heard anything suspicious in the Erceg Road and Cutting Way area between Wednesday November 20 and the early hours of Friday November 22, are asked to phone Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
