CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Concord say thieves have struck at another gun store by using a vehicle to ram the front of the building and get inside.

Police told local media outlets that officers discovered a Mercedes-Benz SUV was driven through the store Friday morning. Officials said the suspects took an undetermined amount of property. WSOC-TV in Charlotte reported the shop owner said someone tried to break into the shop two weeks ago using a car, but were unable to get in.

In late September, police said 13 guns were stolen from another gun shop after a black GMC Sierra reported to be stolen from Charlotte had been driven into the front door.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police charged six suspects in March in a series of break-ins, including two at local gun shops.
