Burglars stole a number of guns from the Bass Pro Store in Independence early Thursday morning.

Independence Police spokesman Tom Gentry said an alarm call came in from the store at 18001 E. Bass Pro Drive about 3:20 a.m.

When officers arrived, the burglars were gone.

The store management reported that a number of guns had been taken in the burglary, but that a complete inventory would need to be conducted for an accurate assessment.

Independence Police are working with the Federal ATF in the investigation.
