CAUGHT ON CAM: Suspects crash vehicle into Fort Mill gun store during robbery

- A local gun store was robbed on Monday morning after authorities say the suspects drove their vehicle through the storefront.

Three juvenile suspects were charged and arrested on Thursday in Charlotte.

The suspects: 16, 14 and 13-year-olds are currently in Charlotte and are being held pending extradition to South Carolina, according to Fort Mill Police.

The 16-year-old is charged with second degree burglary, grand larceny, possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

The 14 and 13-year-old are charged with second degree burglary and grand larceny.

None of the firearms were recovered at the time of the arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

At about 5:47 a.m., on Monday several suspects burglarized the J.J. Aim Right Gun Shop located in the 100 block of Massey Street in Fort Mill, according to Fort Mill Police. 

Authorities say the suspects drove a white Ford Escape through the front doors of the main entrance. The suspects then made off in a different vehicle after taking an undetermined amount of firearms, police say.

Fox 46 Charlotte tried to speak with the shop owners, but we were referred to the Fort Mill Police for more information. 

This is the second time the gun store has been broken into in the last year.

On January 4, 2016, Tiree Keshawn Waymer, 20 of Charlotte, NC, was accused of removing about 14 firearms from the business. Waymer was later charged and convicted of burglary, grand larceny and possession of a firearm.

Anyone with information that might help lead investigators to those responsible are asked to call Fort Mill Police Department.
