Authorities are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two men who stole guns from a gun store during a smash and grab in Streetsboro on Sunday.

Officials said at 11:30 p.m. at least two unidentified suspects forced their way into Top Shot Firearms, 9225 State Route 14, and took ten guns.

The store's owner, Nancy Rollin said she is shocked at what the thieves were able to get away it.

"I'm scared. I'm mad that they have guns," said Rollin.

In the store surveillance video, two men in the far right corner can be seen breaking cases and stealing 10 firearms—costing the owners of the store around $7,000.

"Just to tell you how professional these thugs are, they came into our store and did all this in 22 seconds," she said.

Top Shot Firearms isn't the only store that has been burglarized. Last year, BMT Firearms in Seville was burglarized with over 20 guns stolen. 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is working with the Streetsboro police to investigate.

ATF and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) are offering a total possible award of $5,000. Anyone with information should contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867). Tips can also be emailed into, or contact ATF through its website.
