BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (WKRN) – Police released dramatic footage of a brazen smash-and-grab at a Brentwood gun store that took place early Sunday morning.

It happened at Everything Weapons on Moore’s Lane when thieves used a stolen van to smash through the front of the business.

Three suspects then jumped out of the van and stole thousands of dollars in high-powered weapons.

David Cooper has been cleaning up for the past three days.

“We know they have been here before. They knew exactly what gun cases to go to,” he told News 2.

“They passed by the used guns, the revolvers, and went for 1911s and glocks,” he added.

The video shows the explosive burglary as the van backs up at a high speed, decimated the front security bars and shattering glass.

The masked men burst through the debris to get inside the store where they smashed glass cases before filling bags with guns.

They were gone in less than one minute.

Cooper says the smash-and-grab is well-timed, and the burglary perfectly choreographed with each man knowing his 60-second role in the heist.

“We are going to get you,” the store owner said. “You guys were afraid to face us, man-on-man. Come back. Here we are.”

Anyone with information should call Williamson County Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000. 

ATF is offering the reward in the amount of up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $5,000.
