DECATUR, Ga. - DeKalb County police are searching for four suspects after several guns and electronics were stolen from a pawn shop in Decatur.

On Monday, Nov. 20, officers were dispatched to an alarm call located in the 1800 block of Candler Road.

Officers arrived at the Candler Road Pawn Shop where they found a white U-Haul van with the tag #AH52097 parked on the side of the building with no one inside.

The padlock that was used to keep the front gate of the pawn shop closed was cut open and in front of the door was a set of orange bolt cutters, a hammer, and two screwdrivers.

The complainant arrived to the store and was able to give officers security camera footage of the robbery and the suspects.

The security camera footage showed the U-Haul van and a black four-door sedan pull up to the side of the shop. Four men walked around to the front of the building and one used the bolt cutters to get through the front gate.

One of the suspects broke the glass and the other three entered the location while one of the suspects waited outside. The three who entered the store took six long rifles, including a replica of a Tommy gun and two Sony Playstation IVs.

All four suspects then got into the sedan and left the scene.

One suspect, Cameron Butler, has been taken into custody in relation to this incident.

Police made an arrest that same day after they located a vehicle that was taken in an armed robbery on Snapfinger Road near Wesley Chapel Road. The vehicle that was taken was a black Kia Optima and it was occupied by one man.

The driver was not taken into custody but police did find gloves, a shotgun and a sledgehammer inside the vehicle and believe it may be the same vehicle used in the pawn shop burglary.
