OKLAHOMA CITY — High powered weapons are in the hands of criminals.

Oklahoma City police are asking for the public’s help catching two men accused of breaking into a house and stealing several guns.

Surveillance video shows the pair of crooks responsible for the crime.

Showing up at the home’s front door, two men knocked several times, when no one answered, the pair kicked in the back door.

One of the crooks then tiptoed across the floor wearing gloves.

“They’re wearing gloves. This was not their first rodeo. They do this a lot,” said victim Mike Craig.

The two suspects proceeded to pile up several guns on the floor.

One of them walked over, looked directly into the lens, before ripping a newly installed security camera off the wall.

“We do get a very good look at one of the suspects. Obviously, we hope both men are identified,” said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.

The weapons taken in the theft include four high powered semi automatic assault style weapons as well as a long colt judge revolver, along with an AK-47 and much more.

“You have weapons in the wrong hands. We take it very serious. We want to get the weapons back to their rightful owner,” said Wardlow.

“I’m glad that I have the video and I hope it leads to the prosecution, arrest and prosecution, of those two guys,” said Craig.

Anyone with information can contact the Oklahoma City police department.

The homeowner says he’s also offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and recovery of the weapons.
