PHOENIX -

Phoenix Police need your help finding a trio of thieves who hit a gun shop and made off with 13 military style rifles -- and it was caught on camera.

The owner of C-3 Arms says he thought he had a pretty tight security system, with surveillance cameras and everything, but the three guys who pulled this burglary off Sunday night did it in about two minutes.

"It's a good security I'm blown away, two minutes is all it takes to defeat it," says Eric Francis, owner of C-3 Arms.

Take a good look at this surveillance video. It shows how quickly the three men worked -- prying open the front doors then cutting a security cable and removing 13 pricey assault rifles.

"We're estimating the guns at $12,000 and an additional $12,000 for damage to other guns in the store," says Francis.

Each gun had a serial number etched onto it.

"They're the kind of guns everybody likes to target, they're not dangerous in the right hands but any gun is dangerous in the wrong hands."

It's hard to make out their identities in the video. Bandanas and T-shirts cover their faces. Police say they drove off in a white Chevy pickup.

Investigators are asking the public for tips, and are offering a $6,000 reward to get these guys and the guns off the street.

"They're a risk to the community, number one their contraband because they're stolen, but also the stolen guns will probably be used in crimes for years to come," says ATF Special Agent Bernard Zapor.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Silent Witness.
