Buda gun shop burglarized, suspects sought

Thousands of dollars worth of firearms, including handguns and automatic rifles, were stolen this weekend after thieves used a car to ram through the garage door of the Gun Guys and Gals gun shop in Buda.

Brittany Tate, Buda Police Department spokesperson, said authorities were notified of the burglary at 8:02 a.m. Saturday.

Police are still investigating the crime and say they do not have a description of a suspect or suspects at this time. Tate said the store had some weapons stolen and the garage door had been pushed in.

In a statement on the Gun Guys and Gals Facebook page, owners of the business believe the thieves used a truck to ram through the door at their shop, which allowed them to steal firearms.

Most of the guns stolen were handguns and automatic rifles. One of the firearms stolen was a customer’s gun, while most of the firearms belonged to Hal Skaggs, owner of GGG, or belonged to the shop.

Skaggs also posted on Facebook descriptions of the firearms. Twelve guns were stolen from GGG.

“I have to admit I feel ashamed that I did not have a better plan,” Hal Skaggs, owner of Gun Guys and Gals, wrote on Facebook. “But I did not asked to be robbed and will not be victimized by myself and not publicize these guns.”

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Buda Police Department at 512-312-1001.
