Police are searching for three suspects in the theft of about 20 handguns from a pawn shop in the city's Gentilly neighborhood.
Investigators tell The Times-Picayune the men broke into the shop about 4 a.m. on Tuesday.
Surveillance video shows the men breaking into the shop on Gentilly Boulevard and rummaging through the store.
Police say the suspects smashed a glass display case and stole the guns before moving onto a case of electronics. The guns were taken from the shop in a garbage can. Several electronics items also were stolen, police say.
