TAYLOR, Mich. - Taylor police arrested two people as they were attempting to flee Tuesday morning after breaking into Recoil Firearms on Ecorse near Pardee roads.

Update: Here’s what the gun store thieves were trying to steal from Recoil Firearms in Taylor. Thank goodness these didn’t get on the streets. @clickondetroit pic.twitter.com/WlpPczTLT7 — Nick Monacelli (@nickmonacelli) August 20, 2019
The front window of the store was cracked, although it's not known if that was an original attempt to break in or if it happened while the break-in suspects were in the store. They actually became trapped in the store.
They loaded up bags full with guns and then tried to get out. However, they tripped a silent alarm, trapping them inside. The police arrived pretty quickly to meet them right when they were about to get out of the building.
They had packed up four long guns and an assortment of other guns with boxes of ammunition.
Both suspects are 19 years old, one from Detroit and the other from Wayne, police said.
Break-in at Westland store
There was another break-in Tuesday morning at Uncoiled Firearms and Transfers on Warren Road just west of Hix Road in Westland. Police said nothing was taken during that break-in.
