Sgt. Murphy said the suspects were caught on camera and they also stole money, marijuana and a firearm.

He said anytime a gun is in the hands of someone it shouldn’t be, it’s alarming, but he doesn’t think the public is in any kind of danger because these types of robberies typically center around the drugs.

They are breaking in there to steal marijuana so they can sell it on the black market cause it’s a very lucrative business, in this instance they decided to also take the individuals pet, Pax.
