— The owner of a gun store in western Georgia says thieves rammed a car through one of the walls of his shop and stole an estimated $70,000 worth of high-powered rifles.

Surveillance footage at AR Bunker in Newnan showed that it took thieves less than a minute to jump from a car and steal multiple guns before fleeing the scene early Sunday morning.

Store owner Rusty Morris told WSB-TV that he plans to reopen as soon as possible and he expects repairs to his damaged storefront to be finished Sunday.
