CORDOVA, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Police released images from surveillance footage of an assault rifle theft at Walmart, hoping the public could help to close the case.
Memphis Police Department says three people were working together to steal two assault rifles from the Walmart at 577 South Germantown Parkway on January 27. Less than one month later, a group of four men reportedly stole seven assault rifles from the same Walmart.
Police identified one of the guns stolen as the same model of weapon used in the Newtown, Connecticut school massacre.
Reputable dealers say they can spot stolen guns when offered.
"And if it's a stolen gun and been reported as stolen, then it will come back as such," said Julie Hill co-owner of Arms Fair, which is located not far from the Walmart. "But selling it on the street to another individual, that's difficult."
Police say someone bought a gun safe before the theft. The keys to the rifle case were accidentally stuck to the back of the gun safe, and have not been seen since.
If you recognize any of the people in the photos released by police, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
