Crash, smash and grab.

Memphis teen arrested after break-ins at Horn Lake pawn shop

CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Police searching for suspects who crashed into Mississippi pawnshop, stole jewelry

They stole about $20,000 in jewelry because they couldn’t get to the guns. $6,700 in damages to the front of the shop.

The firearms are kept in a back section of the shop (it’s shaped like a T) with separate, additional, harder security measures, apparently.


Disclaimer: I know the shop owner. I may have also frequented his guns section once or twice … :rolleyes:

Shameless plug: if any of our forum members are 'up this way' (US 51 and Goodman Rd. (MS302), then please check out his business.

Me too LVR, they are some of the best over there at BFC. Been in there a lot more times than my wife thinks/knows about. Really hate that for Danny and Company,

Sorry that happened but glad they caught him and glad he didn't get any guns.

When I first read your subject line, I thought the "pawnshop robbers" you were talking about were the owners of pawnshops. At least the main one in Vicksburg seems to be. Let's just say that they are mighty proud of their very limited inventory. So much so that I rarely go there.

ETA: I don't know how they identified the thieves from that lousy video. They must have something more---maybe license plates or something.

I am surprised that Memphis would assist in arresting the thieves.

I also saw this on WREG news, glad Memphis PD caught one one of the Thugs, maybe they will catch the other three Ghetto Rats, the one they caught is a teenager so he probably will not get any jail time, that video is very hard to see, bad for the owner but at least they didn’t get the guns that would have been on the streets of Memphis.

Yea that shop has quite the selection packed in there. I hate to hear that for the owner though. I lol'ed when I read they tried to shoot the lock off and missed. I saw the one guy in the video appeared to have a glock with a 30 round magazine and a light on it, I guess he didn't practice much.

The hood rats crashed and abandoned the getaway vehicle at US51 and Stateline Rd. later.

I assumed that the police tracked the 16-yr old perp down either from the vehicle itself -- assuming it wasn't stolen -- or from something else inside the vehicle.

I could be wrong though. It wouldn't be the first time -- ask my wife!
