Suffolk police are seeking one or more suspects who stole 15 rifles and shotguns at a local outdoors equipment showroom.

The Dashiell’s Half-round Showroom at 1436 Holland Road was burglarized sometime between 6 p.m. on Tuesday and 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, employees there told police. Fifteen firearms were stolen during the burglary.

The intruder gained entry by breaking in a door, city spokeswoman Debbie George said.

The missing firearms include a variety of shotguns and rifles, including bolt-action and muzzleloaders. They range in price from $270 to $1,300.

George said it is “always” a concern for police when firearms are stolen.

Anyone who has information is asked to call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. Callers to Crime Line never have to give their names or appear in court, and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
