Police: About 70 guns stolen from home near Cleveland | WSYXGARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) —
Police are investigating the theft of about 70 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition from a suburban Cleveland home.
Garfield Heights police say the thieves likely targeted the home because of the large firearms collection.
The resident reported that he was awoken by a gunshot last week and confronted by two men who demanded to know where his guns were.
He said the thieves grabbed the guns and ammunition from a safe and stuffed them into pillow cases before they escaped.
No arrests have been made.
Ironical that a gun nut lost his guns in an armed home invasion.
Jeeze Louise! What would possess anyone to collect so many guns?
It probably is possible to insure against this loss by paying for a rider on your homeowner's insurance, but query whether that is contrary to public policy?
