Default Torrance Store Burglarized

Sorry to hear about the burglary Turners...

I can't stand thieves to begin with - but from a retailer that I'm a patron of strikes even more of a nerve! (I don't shop at Torrance, but the theft will affect all stores I'm sure).

Hopefully they didn't get any guns - or much of anything for that matter (I haven't read details).

According to the news reports a bunch of high-powered rifles and handguns were stolen... but of course they did not get into too much detail

My local Turners aswell. Those firearms should be stored in a secured secondary area. A quick "smash and grab" robbery should not be able to happen at a closed gun store.

They also got held up at the old Redondo Beach location back in 2008:

Good thing I picked my stuff up last weekend and no Turner's employee is injured this time

Both of my guns were there when I picked them up. My friend, unfortunately, had his stolen. A couple of extra hoops and forms netted him a replacement the same day.

What did they expect .

The Lawndale store was broken into 2-3 times . Robbed at gun point ( allegedly ) once . Guy pulled gun on cashier & door person , the other people grabbed guns & ran .

Also got the c**p shop lifted out of it by all of the local gang members .

It's not like there are any other stores to rob . The riots ( 91 ) took care of that .

wow..... Desperate times for some. They couldn't pass 10 day background check so they have to steal it.

I hope they get caught and thrown in jail.

FYI. They were caught last week. Joint effort from Torrance PD, ATF and other agencies.
I think these bad guys were from Bakersfield. They hit a few turners.
I'm glad they are off the streets

Glad to hear they caught the scumbags. Hopefully most of the firearms were recovered.
