EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) -- Federal authorities have raided an East Windsor gun shop where a man allegedly tried to steal an assault rifle. It's the same gun shop where Nancy Lanza, the mother of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter bought at least one one of her guns.
Tonight it is unclear if this raid is in any way connected to that.
Police are trying to inventory the guns after a 26-year-old man Jordan Marsh was arrested for allegedly stealing guns from the shop, including an assault rifle.
Police are unsure of how many guns were taken from the store.
People in the area say they have heard of guns going missing.
"Something that they had a lot of weapons that they were not accounted for and I just found out that ATF is down here," one woman said.
"If somebody stole guns...I heard of an instance but I didn't really see it but it happens everywhere. If someone stole a gun, you can't stop it. That's how it hits the streets. That's how you have all these illegal guns on the street," one man said.
Marsh plead guilty May 10 on felony charges for stealing a firearm in East Windsor. He was sentenced to 18 months jail, execution suspended and probation for 2 years.
Officials are still investigating.
