ORLANDO, Fla. -

Fifteen guns were stolen from an Orlando pawn shop after thieves dressed like ninjas used a vehicle to pull metal bars off the business and broke the glass front door with a brick, police said.

The robbery occurred around 5 a.m. Saturday at the Southern Oaks Gun and Pawn shop at 3101 S. Orange Ave.

Orlando police said the assailants attached a chain to the undercarriage of a white Dodge Caravan and pulled the metal bars off the business.  They then used a brick to break the glass of the front door and went inside, police said.

The thieves are spotted on surveillance video stealing 14 handguns and an air rifle, police said.

The Caravan, which was later determined to be stolen, was left at the scene, and the culprits fled in another SUV, possibly a beige Jeep Cherokee, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
