A Gun Owner Locked More Than 30 Guns in a Safe, We'll Give You One Guess What Happened Next

Earlier this month, a burglar broke into an Auburndale, FL home and stole a 300-pound safe that contained 32 firearms. The break-in took place between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. on November 4th, when the owners of the home were away from the residence. The guns are valued at more than $20,000 and include a combination of rifles, shotguns and pistols.

One of the two burglars broke the kitchen window and climbed inside the home, before opening the backdoor to let in the other accomplice. The two broke down a locked bedroom door and a locked closet door where the safe was located and locked.

“They literally wheeled out the entire safe,” said homeowner Victoria Shadrick.

My safe is bolted into the floor. It would be noisy and heavy to take it, assuming my puppies didn't eat the perps first.

Had to be an inside job. How else would the thieves know to be ready to haul off a 300# safe?
