Multiple weapons stolen from New Britain Township gun store


Several thieves burglarized a Butler Avenue gun store early Saturday morning, stealing rifles and pistols, according to authorities.
Surveillance video at Target World in New Britain Township showed five masked suspects smashing a glass door as they broke into the store at approximately 4:15 a.m. The video showed the suspects, wearing black clothing and carrying backpacks, leaving the business through the same door.

Police said the suspects arrived from County Line Road in a black Hyundai sedan with an “inoperable drive-side brake light.”
“It’s an ongoing investigation,” said New Britain Township Police on Monday morning.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 215-822-1910 and reference report #2022-05-5916.
