Stolen Truck Used In Florida Gun Shop Smash-And-Grab

 Tuesday, April 11, 2017


The security camera video is amazing. Just after 2 a.m. Sunday, a blue Toyota Tundra barreled through the front of “Sunshine State Armory” on Gall Boulevard in Zephyrhills. As the driver backs out, three men wearing hoodies dash in. They load up on guns and ammo. One man runs out with an armful of long guns. Zephyrhills Police are trying to see if this case is tied to similar crimes across the Tampa Bay area. ”We don’t know that. Certainly does seem to fit the M.O. to several of those,” said Capt. Derek Brewer. Like a smash and grab in Inverness, and another one in Tampa, and yet another heist in Lakeland.
