Saraland Police are looking for a group of men who wore Halloween masks to steal three rifles from a pawn shop.
"It's very concerning when anybody illegally gets their hands on a gun, because obviously they don't have good intentions,” said Detective Collette Little with the Saraland Police Department.
In the video, three men pry open the door of a Saraland pawn shop. You can see the first two run in with masks on. They knock over items in the store as they make their way to the back. A third man runs in not far behind them.
"They look like they are young just by how they move and interact with each other,” said Detective Little.
They jump over the counter, where all three grab a rifle off the wall. One guy slips and falls as he tries to jump back over. As the three men run back out the front door, a fourth enters. He runs around the store without taking anything, but you can see he's already holding an object that could possibly be the pry bar used earlier.
"We are not sure why he came in last,” said Little. “They look panicked and not sure where they are. I think possibly the masks we're giving them a hard time seeing."
The entire incident happened at 3:30 a.m. in November 2017. Saraland police need your help trying to find the suspects. Even though they are wearing masks, detectives are hoping someone will recognize something about them to help the case move forward.
"When they start to see them move, or talk, or how they are interacting with other people, people recognize that and can identify someone based on how somebody moves,” said Little. "Definitely share the videos. The more people who see it, the more likely we are to have an identification."
