ELK GROVE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say thieves broke into a two gun stores Sunday but left without any weapons.

KCRA reports (https://bit.ly/1WkzCAe ) MTG Firearms and Laguna Guns and Accessories were targeted around 6 a.m. Sunday.

Police and Laguna Guns and Accessories Owner Andrew Tonis say thieves backed a vehicle into the front doors of the shop but failed to get any guns because they were locked down.

Surveillance video from the store shows the three burglars searching for the guns, backpacks open but no merchandise to fill them, the station reported.

Two miles down the road, MTG Firearms was hit just minutes later, likely by the same suspects.

Crime scene investigators gathered evidence, including a footprint from one of the suspects.

Last week, a gun store in nearby Rocklin was robbed or more than 100 firearms. Police don’t know if the cases are linked.
