Three suspects steal $21,000 worth of weapons from gun shop in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tennessee — Three suspects are in jail for stealing $21,000 worth of weapons last week at a gun shop in Memphis.

At around midnight on August 3, police responded to a business alarm at Shoot Point Blank near I-40 and Whitten Road. Officers found a door unlocked and heard glass breaking inside.

Surveillance video shows the three men enter the business just before midnight with a large ax and several bags, smash the cases and take off with 31 guns valued at about $21,000.

Investigators found the fence behind the business cut.

According to police, the suspects were spotted on surveillance camera the day before the burglary casing the business in a dark-colored Dodge Neon with missing hub caps.

Officers on patrol Saturday spotted the car with 23-year-old Kedrick Monger behind the wheel. He was detained for driving with a suspended license.

A police report says he later confessed to the burglary.

Martez Banks, 27, was arrested at his home Sunday and Corey Groves, 25, was arrested Monday.

All three are charged with burglary from a business and property theft $10,000 to $60,000.

It’s not clear if any of the guns have been recovered.
