HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police are seeking a number of suspects who broke into a gun store and stole at least 50 weapons in a crime captured on security video.

Authorities say three people have been arrested and seven other suspects are sought following the burglary before dawn Tuesday when the store was closed.

The video shows the suspects attaching a chain to a pickup truck to pull down the bar-covered front doors.

The suspects - all wearing dark clothing, hoodies and gloves - then dash into the store and use hammers to break into gun cabinets and other displays. The suspects then flee with the weapons.

The surveillance video has been posted online by Crime Stoppers of Houston in the hope that the public might be able to help identify the suspects.
