HUNTSVILLE A break-in yesterday netted thieves five rifles.

Police say that on March 3 the OPP were called to home in the Herman Avenue area about the theft.

They say unknown person or persons entered the residence sometime in the previous two weeks and four rifles and an airsoft rifle were stolen.

Airsoft is a popular simulated military combat game — essentially a game of tag with simulated weapons played by small groups and at commercial properties.

The suspect(s) caused no damage on entry or to the residence, which is located just west off Huntsville’s Main Street, near the McDonald’s.

The investigation into this break and enter is ongoing.
