Burglars foil alarm but are caught on cameraNovember 21, 2023
More than 100 handguns were stolen in a heist last week in southwestern Michigan, but they were recovered before they could fuel gun violence on the streets. Two brothers, Darnell Bishop and Dontrell Nance, are accused of accosting the manager of Dunham’s Sports at gunpoint, handcuffing and blindfolding him, and forcing him to reveal the security code. One of the brothers then went to the store and filled two coolers with guns. The pair has been arrested and charged with federal crimes related to firearms theft, facing potential life in prison if convicted. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives officials displayed the 123 recovered guns, valued at over $100,000. The brothers did not disable security cameras and were caught after the store manager called 911. Officials stated that the stolen guns were likely headed for quick sale and quick money on the streets. U.S. Attorney Mark Totten called the incident a striking example of the gun violence crisis. Only one gun from the stolen stash remains unrecovered.
