WINDER, Ga. -- Winder Police are investigating a burglary after a truck drove into a building, allowing suspects to steal up to $16,000 worth of firearms.
The burglary occurred at Southeast Pawn, located at 138 West Athens Street at around 3:15 a.m. Sunday.
Video shows one suspect approaching the front window of the business on foot and looking inside. A moment later a white Dodge Ram pickup drove into the front of the business. Three additional suspects ran into the business behind the truck and began to steal multiple guns.

The truck was left at the scene and was later determined to have been stolen from an apartment complex in Atlanta. It is believed the suspects fled the scene in a second vehicle.
An estimated list of guns stolen so far has been turned over to the police by the pawn shop.
According to Officer Chris Cooper, 21 guns were stolen. Four were long rifle-style, semi-automatics and the rest were handguns. One of the long guns was listed as a Bushmaster semi-automatic.
"Our thought is that they want to re sell these on the street," Cooper said. "The pawn shop owner estimates their value at a total of $16,000 so even if the thieves sell them at half their worth they turn a fast, quick profit."
It is believed that some ammunition was also stolen.
The shop owners are still searching their inventory for any additional items that may have been taken.
