ABC 13 - 20 semi-automatic rifles stolen in Kingwood burglary

HPD and federal agents are looking for nearly two dozen semi-automatic rifles stolen from a Kingwood gun store.

The store owner told ABC13 this was the first time he's been broken into. The thieves made off with $20,000 worth of firearms.

In the story:
The gun store has cameras, tied to the alarm system. Apparently the window that was broken did not have alarms sensors on it, so the store does not have video of the suspects.

Sounds like it was just luck, on the part of the thieves, or someone knew exactly which window to use to gain entry. Of course it doesn't say whether or not, other windows, were equally, as vulnerable, but it does give rise to the possibility, of an inside job, or disgruntled ex-employee. JMHO

a much more robust alarm system can be had for cheap. Glass break, motion detectors... It's very unfortunate that this place didn't have a better alarm. Hopefully some one else has video of these guys, or they left behind other evidence.

Sounds just a little suspicious. I can't imagine any gun stores these days not having extensive security systems with video surveillance.

Was this a very old store using ancient technology? I can't imagine having a camera system that doesn't run ALL the time.
