A power outage in Havre de Grace may have played a role in the theft of 20 handguns and an undisclosed amount of jewelry from a city pawnshop last week.
On the morning of September 3, Havre de Grace police received a report regarding a breaking and entering at The Bank Gun and Pawn located in the 300 block of St. John Street.
The suspects, once inside, damaged several glass cases and removed 20 handguns and some jewelry.
Havre de Grace police believe the breaking and entering took place in the early morning hours of September 3 and they continue to look into whether the power outages played any part in the crime.
Aberdeen Police Crime scene technician processed the crime scene, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms has been notified of the incident, and all the handguns have been entered into National Crime Information Center by serial number to assist if the guns are located and checked by law enforcement anywhere in the country.
