Suspects sought in BB gun burglary at Delaware Cabela's

- Delaware state police are searching for five men they say stole multiple BB-guns and air rifles from a Newark Cabela’s.

Police say the burglary occurred around 1:15 a.m. back on Thursday, August 30, at the Cabela’s Christiana Mall location.

An employee who was working the overnight shift said they noticed a ringing at the main entrance caused by the door’s motion sensor. When the employee went to investigate why the door wasn’t secured, they witnessed the suspects fleeing the store.

Investigators say four suspects entered the store after prying open the doors at the entrance. A fifth suspect waited by the doors while the others went inside and grabbed an assortment of BB guns and ammunition from the shelves.

Once they ran out of the store, all five suspects ran to a vehicle that was parked on the ramp from northbound Route 1 to I-95 North.

The BB guns taken, which all resemble actual firearms consisted of the following:

  • BB Gun Air Rifle Machgun .177 cal.
  • M4-177 Rifle Kit
  • BB-177 Caliber Pump
  • Umarex Steel Force BB Gun
  • Umarex XBG .177 BB ammunition

Anyone with information regarding this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the suspects are asked to contact Detective D. DeFlaviis of the Troop 2 Criminal Investigative Unit at 302-365-8388.
