    A group of thieves rammed a stolen pickup truck through the front door of a Florida gun shop and stole firearms and ammunition.

    The Zephyrhills Police Department posted surveillance video on its Facebook page that shows the blue truck smashing through the entrance of Sunshine State Armory early Sunday.

    The video shows at least three people running in after the truck and grabbing guns and ammunition from cases as the truck backs out of the store. The suspects then ran to the truck and fled before police arrived.

    Pasco County Sheriff's deputies found the truck, which was reported stolen, on fire in a wooded area nearby.

    The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the suspects' arrests.
