MOST WANTED: Surveillance of pawn shop burglary

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police need your help to track down pawn shop burglars with their eyes on weapons.

A Jackson detective is casting a wide net for two alleged business burglars. May 29th two men and one female enter D.J.'s Silver Mine Pawn Shop on I-55 near Northside during the day. The owners say they tried to pawn off some cheap jewelry. But cops say what the trio is doing is casing the store in order to make a hit later.

Sometime after 1:00 a.m. two young men return. They pry the heavily secured door open with a tool gaining access to the business, but something spooked the pair. They run out. Less than 10 minutes later the bold thieves return propping the door open with a speaker.

One unidentified burglary jumps the counter. The other tries to hide his face. Their target high powered weapons. One man steals a rifle.  In a matter of two minuets they grab specific pistols, like they have a list of requests. Sig Sauers, a Walther, 3 Glocks. In all, four 9 mm's stolen.

Police fear these weapons will be sold on the streets and used to commit crimes. Help put a stop to this. Turn them in.

Jackson detectives want you to call Crimestoppers anonymously at 601-355-8477 or call police directly at 601-960-2710.

You could be in for a reward. 
