Detectives say thieves stole two high-powered automatic weapons that were meant for war and can cause a lot of destruction, reports News 11's Lisa Rantala. Most gun thefts involve rifles, shotguns, handguns. But in this case, the machine gun makes an AK-47 look like a BB gun, says the gun's owner. Now deputies want the weapons off the street, fearing where, and with whom, they'll end up. "It's for killing enemy personnel. The bigger the boom, the bigger the wound," said the gun owner about the stolen guns. And for this local gun owner, the M-60 was a prize in his collection. He says it can shoot through homes, cars and up to 850 bullets in a minute. It took him eight months to obtain federal approval for the weapon, and he kept it in mint condition to increase its value. "They're awesome weapons. They're war things, relics, trophies," the gun owner said. At 2 a.m. Tuesday, he noticed the guns were gone. His apartment and trophy case had both been broken into. "He came home and found his back door kicked in and had a gun safe that had been pried open," said Lucas County Detective Mark Woodruff. "I'm worried for the police officers out on the street right now because if real psychos get ahold of these things..." the gun owner worried. Along with the M-60, the thieves took his automatic Uzi with a silencer. "They'll probably be traded for drug money. So, you don't know who's going to end up with them," Detective Woodruff said. Police are asking for your help to get these dangerous weapons off the streets. If you have any information about the theft, please call Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111.
