Two in custody in pawn shop break-in

Police Investigator Chad Glasson said that officers have two suspects in custody in connection with the burglary of the Beneficial Pawn Shop on West Bankhead Saturday, June 7, during which 18 handguns were stolen.

He declined to release further specific information at this time, citing a “wide-scale multi-agency investigation” that is continuing in the case.

“Officers have been working day and night on this and the investigation is covering a wider area than we first expected,” he said.

Efforts are continuing to get all the guns back and keep them off the street, Glasson added, and more information about those involved may be available next week.
