PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - Police and a store owner in Northern California say four men who rammed a car into a gun store and stole 18 weapons worth some $12,000.

The Petaluma Police Department says it received a report Saturday that the Independence Armory had been burglarized.

It says surveillance video shows the suspects used a 1990s Honda Accord with a primer or white colored driver’s door to ram the business, which disabled the security system. They then went inside, took the weapons and fled in the vehicle.

Surveillance video images released by police show four suspects, believed to all be men.

The store owner Wael Hadid tells the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat that they took 18 handguns, most of them semi-automatic Glocks.

They tried to take an AR-15 assault rifle but couldn’t unlock a security cable.
