Silver Lake police are on the hunt Monday morning for burglars who smashed car windows with rocks, stole an AR-15 rifle and handgun from inside and then shot up vehicles with the firearms.

Police chief Randall L. Call posted about the thefts and shots fired, which happened between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. He asked Silver Lake drivers to remove firearms from their cars to prevent further break-ins, as the burglar only targeted cars with guns inside.

The Silver Lake police are calling for anyone with a home surveillance system to check their footage from last night. They can be contacted at 785-582-5162.
