Surveillance video of wild gun heist released

CHANDLER, Ariz. (KSAZ) -- On Wednesday, Chandler Police released surveillance video of a wild gun heist where thieves ram a stolen truck through the store's front doors.

According to a statement released by Chandler Police on Tuesday, the incident happened on Monday at a store on the 2800 block of S. Alma School Road. The suspect, 32-year-old Miguel Gomez and 26-year-old Alicia Gonzalez, are now in jail on a number of charges.

In the video, the truck was seen speeding through the front doors of Shopper's Supply. The impact with the store's front entrance did not slow down the truck, as it continued down a main aisle. The truck eventually stopped, and the couple went straight for the area where pistols are kept, using an object to shatter the top of the glass displays.

The couple then reached in, and collected as many guns as they can. In the end, 21 guns were stolen. 12 of the guns were recovered on Tuesday, with the remaining found on various parts of the Gila River Indian Reservation.

After the heist, surveillance video shows the truck attempting to go full-speed reverse through the shattered storefront, but the getaway route was blocked with glass and debris. With the vehicle stuck, the couple got out and decided to make a run for it.

Gomez and Gonzalez, according to police, fled the store on foot to a nearby farm, where they were picked up by an adult female driving a maroon Chevrolet pickup truck. Officers than tried to stop the car along westbound Queen Creek Road, but the driver refused to yield, and a pursuit took place that ended with the three's arrest on the Gila River Indian Reservation. The adult female, who was not identified, was released without charges.
