These guys cut a hole in a Texas gun dealer’s building and stole weapons, charges say

Three men accused of cutting a hole in the side of a firearms dealership in Alvarado and stealing nearly 20 guns from the store have been arrested and charged with theft of firearms, police said.

Craig Demond Campbell and Michael Jerome Bray took the firearms from the Crazy Gun Dealer at 5301 East Highway 67 in March while Taija White served as a lookout outside the store, police say.

On March 30, charges state, the three loaded a car with burglary tools and parked in a field near the store.

Campbell, 21, and Bray, 33, cut a hole in the side of the gun dealer’s building and broke into the store, according to police.

Once inside, they stole 17 guns, including shotguns, rifles and pistols, police say.

While they were inside the store, Campbell and Bray were on the phone with White, 20, who was outside serving as a lookout, court documents state.

The three men drove the stolen guns to Dallas, according to charges.

White was also charged with possessing a firearm while under indictment for obstruction and retaliation. Bray was charged with possession of a gun by a felon based on a prior conviction.
