BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Police say a Bismarck man drove a vehicle into a gun shop storefront and stole four rifles, which were later recovered after the man was arrested.

According to police Lt. Luke Gardiner, the 22-year-old man rammed a service-type vehicle with cabinets into the front door of Double H Guns early Monday and stole what Gardiner called “a number of firearms.”

On Monday afternoon, police responded to a report of a gas drive-off at a Holiday station and the vehicle fit the one that was used in the gun shop robbery. Gardiner said officers followed the vehicle. The man tried to flee but was eventually arrested.

The guns were still in the vehicle and were recovered, the Bismarck Tribune reported. No ammunition, gunpowder or gun accessories were stolen.

The gun shop opened at its current location in 2013 and hasn’t had an incident like this, said owner Darryl Howard.
