Deputies: 23 guns stolen from Cascade Twp. store

Kent County

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Cascade Township gun store has been broken into for the second time in as many years.

Kent County deputies say an alarm alerted them to the break-in at Barracks 616 around 2:47 a.m. Wednesday.

When deputies arrived, they determined someone had forced their way into the store and stolen approximately 23 handguns.

Surveillance video from the business showed four masked thieves swiping the weapons. They were seen leaving in a white SUV.

In September 2017, a group of teens busted into the business near 28th Street and Kraft Avenue SE, taking 20 weapons. The thieves also targeted Cabela’s in Grandville, getting away 13 guns.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office is handling the current investigation.

“The sheriff’s office works continuously to advise businesses regarding security and practices that will keep the community safe. Incidents like this are a good reminder for gun owners to properly secure weapons in the event of a break in,” Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young said in a Wednesday statement.

Anyone with information regarding the most recent crime is encouraged to contact investigators at 616.632.6125 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
