TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson gun shop near West Grant and North Oracle roads is using social media to release surveillance video and pictures of someone appearing to steal a special-edition firearm worth more than $500.

Owner of Climags gun shop, Ben McMahon, said the two men seen in the pictures came into his store Monday, July 10, and allegedly "worked together" to steal a Ruger 10/22 Charger, a type of semi-automatic pistol.

"They kind of stood around with money in hand ready to make a purchase, it seemed, coming in for just that one item," McMahon said. "Four minutes later, they were gone and out the door."

In the video, you can see one of the men, seen wearing a plaid shirt and a dark colored baseball cap and glasses, picks up the gun and moves to several different spots around the store before taking it out the door.

"They came in and wanted to make the purchase and said 'We don't have enough money, I need to go back out to the car and grab some more cash'," McMahon said. "Then they drove away."

McMahon said the incident is being investigated by the Tucson Police Department.

In addition, he said he's offering a special reward for anyone with information.

"It's very upsetting that it happened," McMahon said. "If you're a bad guy you're going to get caught. That's the bottom line."

If you have any information on this case, you are asked to call Tucson Police or Climag's gun shop at 520-884-4848.
