EXCLUSIVE: Gun thieves caught on camera

LAS VEGAS - Nearly a dozen guns were stolen from a Summerlin home, and now there's fear that the weapons may be in the wrong hands.

The thieves were caught in the act on surveillance video you're only going to see on 8 News NOW.

Metro Police are investigating the theft, but the homeowner has also decided to take things into his own hands.  Fred Flamm has hired two private investigators to find the guns.  He has also turned to 8 News NOW to get the word out.

"The guy was coming over the gate, and his face was exposed right there," Flamm said.

Flamm says two burglars broke into his home, stealing personal items, along with the nine guns.

"They broke into the door this way here," Flamm said as he showed the damage.  "So when they went around this corner here, they were caught on this camera as well."

According to Flamm, the burglars were prepared because they turned off his motion sensors.

Even with the locks, cameras, detectors and guard dog, Flamm says the burglary has him wanting to add even more security, so he's getting a gun safe.

"You worry about who's hands they're going to get into, and you surely don't want anybody to get hurt because of what's going on in today's world," Flamm said.

Flamm has offered a $5,000 reward for anyone with information that can help Metro Police identify and convict those involved.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 702-385-5555.
