Dozens of handguns stolen in Bellevue burglary

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Police say a stolen car was used by burglars to ram into a Bellevue gun shop and shooting range.

The burglars then stole dozens of handguns.

The burglary happened at West Coast Armory at 13216 Southeast 32nd Street early Tuesday.  A garbage truck driver noticed a broken door there and called police at 3:11 a.m.

Surveillance footage showed a stolen silver Honda Accord smashing through the front door. Three men got out of the car, smashed gun cases inside the building and stole 40 to 50 handguns.

They then fled in the Honda.

A similar burglary happened at the same gun store in April 2016.  In that burglary, a car also rammed into the store and guns and ammunition were taken.
