Original post: Two people robbed a Rockville gun store of multiple handguns and long guns early Thursday morning, Montgomery County police said.
The alarm sounded at the United Gun Shop in the 5400 block of Randolph Road about 3:50 a.m., a police spokesman said.
“Anytime we have firearms taken from homes in burglaries, we’re concerned,” Officer Rick Goodale said. “But whenever you have a gun store targeted and multiple firearms of various types taken, it significantly increases our level of concern.”
More details as they become available.
