TAMPA-(FOX 13) - Polk County deputies are investigating the theft of 30 handguns and 10 semi-automatic rifles of various styles.
Officials say the theft occurred at Titan Arms on South Florida Avenue in unincorporated Lakeland just before 3 a.m. Sunday. The suspects broke out a window and burglar bars, grabbed the firearms, and fled.
Witnesses say they saw three black males exit a vehicle and remove the weapons, while the driver remained in the car.
The car believed to be involved in the theft was captured on video surveillance taken from a nearby business. The video shows what deputies believe is the gray 2009 to 2014 Ford 150 extended-cab pickup. They say the truck has chrome wheels, bumpers and a horizontal slat style grill with a black tonneau bed cover.
