A trio of thieves stole several guns from a Fort Mill sporting goods store after breaking the windows Saturday.
Deputies received alerts of multiple glass break alarms around 4:40 a.m. Saturday. They found that the boat showroom window had been shattered with a rock, according to an incident report from Saturday’s theft.
