According to a news release, when officers arrived to the Clyde Armory, located at 4025 Watson Blvd., the window to the front door was broken and 24 firearms were taken.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been called in to investigate.

Nero Priester of the ATF's Atlanta office said 15 long-weapons -- rifles, shotguns or assault rifles -- were stolen and nine handguns.
