Commercial burglary

Laurel, 20723: Fox Firearms, 11200 block of Scaggsville Road, June 12 2 a.m.

Police responded for a business alarm and discovered that unknown suspect(s) gained entry to the business by driving a vehicle through the front of the store and stole multiple guns. Police determined that the vehicle had been reported stolen. The investigation is ongoing.

The actual address of Fox Firearms is 11200 Scaggsville Rd #125, Laurel, MD 20723. Here is information they list on their website about page:

Because of our location and size, we are able to offer most of our firearms at prices lower than many gun shop delaers and most ‘Big Box’ sporting goods stores. We sell new and used guns, making it affordable for most people to own a firearm. We are a full-service dealer, and can order you a new firearm, or you can use our Gun Finder Service to locate a used or hard-to-find gun (click on the link to the left for information on our Gun Finder Service). All new firearm orders require a 20% deposit, and if you decide not to purchase the gun you will not receive a refund until we sell it. If we must sell it for less than we paid, the difference will be deducted from your deposit.

We normally carry over 100 different handguns, a few hunting rifles & shotguns, and 15 different Heavy Barrel AR-15 tactical rifles – all Maryland Legal.

Looking at the location it would not have been easy to drive a vehicle into that store:

Hopefully the Howard County Police Department will continue to provide updates to this crime. If they do share additional details…I will be sure to post a follow up article.

  1. The United Gun Shop appears to be in a warehouse complex. So, they had time to grab and run.

    However, Fox is visible from Rt 29. I realize it was 2am when the crime occurred.
    But, it had to be very gutsy to break into Fox. Why?
    The HoCo Police Dept Laurel substation is approx. 200 ft away. (I am assuming they are still there)

    If you notice, many retail stores have placed Metal/concrete poles in front of the stores to prevent break in and the senior citizens pressing on the gas pedal instead of the brake.
    If I owned a gun shop, I would have installed some kind of barrier the first day of business.
