Suspects steal firearms from San Carlos gun store

San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies are seeking three suspects who used a car to smash through the front of a gun store in San Carlos and then took numerous firearms before fleeing.

The break-in was reported at about 5:20 a.m. Sunday at Imbert and Smithers, a gun store at 1144 El Camino Real, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies responded and found that the front of the store had been smashed in by a vehicle and the suspects had fled.

Surveillance footage showed the three suspects jumping out of the black, four-door sedan that hit the front of the building. The suspects, wearing masks, gloves and hooded sweatshirts, stole guns before fleeing in the vehicle, sheriff’s officials said.

No other information about the theft or suspects was immediately available. Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call sheriff’s Detective Andy Armando at (650) 363-4347 or email him at Aarmando@smcgov.org.

People can also call the sheriff’s office’s anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.buglarygun storeSan Carlos

FILE — Mort Sahl on Nov. 10, 1967. Sahl, who confronted Eisenhower-era cultural complacency with acid stage monologues, delivering biting social commentary in the guise of a stand-up comedian and thus changing the nature of both stand-up comedy and social commentary, died on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021, at his home in Mill Valley, Calif., near San Francisco. He was 94. (Don Hogan Charles/The New York Times)
