JUNCTION CITY, Ore.--- A pick-up truck slammed through the front door of a Junction City gun store Saturday morning, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Adam Bryce, the co-owner of GunRunner Arms, said the people in the truck also took several rifles. The Lane County Sheriff's Office told Bryce they did recover one of the guns, but there are still some missing. Bryce said his store has multiple layers of securities features in the event of a break in.

"As soon as that hit the building all the alarms started going off," Bryce said. "Everything from glass break detectors to motion censors all picked it up. Plus the fact that the front door was destroyed. It went off immediately and as soon as it did, I got a notification on my phone."

Wood now covers the hole the truck made from the impact. Bryce said when his store is secure, he will be back open for business. KEZI did reach out to the Lane County Sheriff's Office for information but they did not get back.
