Guns stolen from Gainesville Big Daddy Guns, two unidentified burglars still at large

Sheriffs ask nearby homeowners to check surveillance footage

Sheriffs are looking for two people who stole several firearms from Big Daddy Guns in Gainesville early Thursday morning.

Deputies responded to a burglary alarm at the store at around 3:27 a.m. said Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Chris Sims in a video. When the first deputy arrived, they found a broken window, Sims said.

Helicopters, drones and K-9 units were deployed by ACSO to investigate. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also assisting in the case.

Investigators haven’t identified any suspects as of Thursday morning but believe there were two burglars.

ACSO asked Tower Road residents to check their home surveillance footage and send any relevant information to Crime Stoppers, the office’s website, or their social media channels.

Due to the federal involvement in the investigation, ACSO could not comment further.
