High Powered Rifles Stolen, Feared In Wrong Hands

Spring Hill, Tenn. -- Handguns and high powered rifles are missing from a mid-state home, and investigators fear they're now in the wrong hands. This after a burglary at a home on Oak Valley Drive in Spring Hill Tuesday.  

Maury County Sheriff's Detectives are investigating after the homeowner says someone broke into the basement and stole two safes that allegedly held the guns and several ammunition magazines. Among the weapons taken were two Colt AR 15 semi-automatic rifles as well as Glocks and Smith & Wesson handguns.

"It can be very alarming," said Maury County Sheriff's Detective Terry Chandler. "These guns could be in the hands of a convicted felon or they could be anywhere at this moment." 

At this time, it's still unclear if the thieves targeted this particular house for the weapons or if it was a random location. Regardless, investigators say it's critical they track these guns down, so they don't remain at large, possibly in the hands of those who shouldn't have them.  

Investigators say the owner may not have the serial numbers written down, which may make it difficult for police to track them. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Maury County Sheriff's Department at (931) 380-5733.
