A gun shop in Warren County was robbed of nearly three dozen guns.
The burglary took place at Tech Ops International Corporation in Lopatcong earlier this week while the store was closed. 
Gun store workers told News 12 less than 36 guns were stolen, and all of them were 9 mm handguns. Police said ammunition was taken, just the guns, that wholesale at around $36,000 and could retail at about $70,000.
Authorities added were alerted when an employee at the nearby gas station was heading to work and noticed the open door. They are working to get surveillance video to try and identify the suspects.
"It's concerning to have 36 guns stolen that we know will be distributed among criminal networks that are out there," Warren County Prosecutor Jim Pfeiffer said.
News 12 reached out to the store for comment, but has yet to hear back.
