***********ORIGIONAL RELEASE***************


On April 13th, 2018, at approximately 3:42am, Sparks Black Rifle was the victim of a Commercial Burglary.  A green Honda Passenger car was driven through the front glass doors and metal security gates.  Another suspect made entry on foot behind the Honda.  The two suspects then stole several handguns and a rifle.  The suspects were in and out of the business in a very short time frame and left on foot.  The vehicle used in commission of the Burglary was found to have been stolen just prior to the Burglary.  The victim of the auto theft does not appear to have any involvement with the crime.


The investigation is in its preliminary stages, evidence is being processed and surveillance video reviewed at this time.  Anyone with information is urged to call Sparks Police at 353-2231 or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
