Thieves made off with at least $70,000 in weapons from a gun shop in Newnan, Ga., on Sunday.

The three suspects rammed a silver car into the storefront window of the AR Bunker gun shop on Highway 35 just before 5 a.m. and began shoving firearms into the backseat, a local CBS affiliate reported.

The thieves took at least $70,000 in weapons in less than a minute and caused about $30,000 in damage, the station said.

Police said the suspects dumped the silver car nearby, leaving some guns in it and in the woods as they ran away.

Store owner Rusty Morris said a group of people visited the store twice last week without buying anything.

“They stayed in the store and walked around,” he told CBS. “And despite us asking, they wanted no help and left without asking any questions. We have them on video and we’re gonna make a copy of them for the sheriff’s department and the ATF so they can combine with some of their other leads.”

AR Bunker reopened for business Monday morning.

“OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!! We had a long day of clean up yesterday but are ready to go now. Update coming soon on the ‘You cant keep a good man down/scratch and dent’ sale,” the shop posted on Facebook.
