CAVE01Z01MA - V1 Thieves flee with guns from safe POLICE are investigating the theft of two firearms in Alice Springs. Detective Superintendent Travis Wurst said officers received a report that a house in Braitling had been unlawfully entered some time between 7pm on Sunday and 7.30am on Monday. The offenders forced entry into the home and have thoroughly searched the premises, Supt Wurst said. They located keys to the gun safe and stole two firearms with ammunition a 22-calibre rifle and a 12-gauge double-barrel shotgun. The firearms remain outstanding at this stage but the matter is an active police investigation. Police ask anyone with any information to phone 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1300 333 000. This appears to be an opportunistic crime as it does not appear the firearms were specifically targeted, Supt Wurst said. Ensure your safe keys are secured well away from your gun safe. If you go on holidays, take the keys with you. Charles Creek town camp resident Derrick Conway points out the spot where a dead tree was downed by heavy wind on New Year's Day just near his house..
