Wayne County Sheriff's deputies and federal authorities are looking for whoever broke into a Palmyra gun shop and stole more than two dozen guns.
"They kicked the door in and they defeated the security system," said Deputy Chief Bob Hetzke, Wayne County Sheriff's Office.
They say no alarm went off and the surveillance camera didn't catch the crime in the act.
Now, there are guns they say are likely headed for the street.
D & M Shooting Sports is the shop on Route 31 in Palmyra where authorities say the burglary happened.
They say sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning, the store was targeted.
Investigators want to know who broke into the gun shop - stealing 24 handguns and a rifle.
No banned assault weapons or ammunition were taken.
In november more than 60 guns were stolen from tom's guns and ammo in sodus.
It's unknown if the two are connected.
"We are following up leads with the first burglary we have some really good leads on that that I can't get into," said Hetzke.
Authorities say these guns go for a high price on the black market.
Deputy Chief Bob Hetzke said many times when they interview criminals, they find out that they have gone into the city [Rochester] to sell the illegal guns on the streets.
Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard said the guns used in many crimes trickle in from outside the city.
Local experts say about 40-percent of crimes are committed with stolen guns.
"As the market increases the profitability of stealing these guns and bringing them to the city increases," said Chief Sheppard.
Chief Sheppard says they will be on the lookout for these stolen weapons.
"We work closely with ATF in prosecuting the cases and we know we have to be proactive in our efforts on the street to remove this guns before they are actually use," said Chief Sheppard.
Sheppard says it takes proactive stops and drug surveillance to track illegal weapons.
