Because, you know, the Krispy Kreme was still serving:
Houston police are looking for two men who broke into a firearms store and stole guns and rifles.
Detectives believe it happened between 1 and 2 am at Collectors Firearms in the 3300 block of Fondren. Police say once inside the store, the thieves were like “kids in a candy store.” They ripped off an undisclosed number of guns and rifles, plus ammunition.
Detectives say the two men did trigger a burglar alarm on the building. But police were not dispatched immediately. Police would not say why, saying that is currently part of the investigation. They were not called to the scene until 7:20am.
They do have surveillance video, but really; it’s a gun store getting robbed, not a garden nursery; a little more urgency would have been nice.
