LANSING, Ill. (February 9, 2023) – The Lansing Police Department has released images and video footage of a break-in that occurred at Pelcher’s Shooters Supply in Lansing Thursday morning.
The video shows three individuals breaking into the store, located at 18149 Henry Street, at around 2:45 a.m. on February 9. According to a Lansing Police press release, no firearms were taken as part of the burglary.
The release said the same individuals involved in the break-in are thought to be connected to a previous incident at Pelcher’s that occurred on January 25, as well as a burglary that took place at the the Canada Goose store on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, 800 N. Michigan Avenue, on January 30.
Lansing Police responded to a burglar alarm on Thursday morning at Pelcher’s, and confirmed entry had been made. Security camera footage provided by LPD shows two individuals using a hammer to break glass for entry into the store at 2:44 a.m. A pair of videos from inside the store moments later confirm at least three individuals were involved in the break-in, one of whom appears to be holding a gun.
The video below includes four videos provided by the Lansing Police Department, the first showing the Pelcher’s break-in from an outside camera, and the second and third showing interior footage. The fourth video includes various angles of the break-in that occurred at the Canada Goose store in Chicago on January 30.
