The search continues for a man who burglarized a local pawn shop and stole guns from the store.
It’s back to business for Ed Ramey and his wife who own Dublin Pawn and E.S. Ramey Firearms.
But on Small Business Saturday, they got an unwelcome surprise.
“They noticed drywall insulation on the flooring, then looked up and noticed multiple ceiling tiles were missing from the roof of the building,” said Ed Ramey, owner of Dublin Pawn.
Ed says he believes the thieves broke in through the ceiling and stole 5 long guns from this wall.
“They reached down or somehow fished down through the ceiling tiles and pulled out the guns,” said Ed Ramey, owner of Dublin Pawn.
“They never set our alarm off, they never got in front of our cameras,” said Ed Ramey, owner of Dublin Pawn.
He says he is now he’s doing more.
“We’re upgrading the security system, the alarm system, upgrading cameras and we will be upgrading the way we, we’ll be locking the long guns up too,” said Ed Ramey, owner of Dublin Pawn.
Dublin police are investigating and there is a 5 thousand dollar reward for the arrest of the suspect or suspects in this case.
“The money, the incentive, that they can actually get something, they are going to be more willing to turn someone in they know, or know of,” said ed ramey, owner of dublin pawn.

Their security camera was the one who captured the picture of the thief.
Ed says he hopes the cash reward will help catch whoever did this.
“It’d be heartbreaking anytime, if you’ve had anything stolen it’s heartbreaking,” said Ed Ramey, owner of Dublin Pawn.
So that it doesn’t happen to anyone else in the community.
