This property was the Shooter Edge store located in the 1000 block of W. U.S. Highway 287 Bypass.

This allegedly caused a pecuniary loss of $30,000 or more but less that $150,000 to the owner.

According to a July 11 Daily Light article, 17 guns were stolen from Shooter’s Edge, owned by former Waxahachie Police Chief Chuck Edge. Only three of the handguns stolen during the heist have been recovered thus far in the investigation, Waxahachie Police Lt. Todd Woodruff previously said.

“The suspects used a stolen red Ford F250 truck to ram a hole in an exterior wall. The suspects quickly entered and stole several firearms, then left the scene in a white Ford dual cab pickup. We believe there were about seven suspects involved. Some of the suspects wore masks,” stated Woodruff. “The red truck was left near the scene, and it was gone over [July 10] by an Ellis County Sheriff’s Physical Evidence technician.”

Preliminary information released by the ATF indicated that 12 handguns, three AR style high-powered rifles, one AK-style high power rifle and one shotgun were stolen. Another suspect vehicle was described to be a white Ford four-door pickup truck. No cash was taken, according to an ATF press release.

Along with the Waxahachie Police Department members of the Dallas office of the ATF, the Mesquite Police Department, U.S. Marshals and the FBI have assisted in the investigation.

Dallas Police arrested Dallas resident, Deauntre, and a 16-year-old juvenile on July 26. The juvenile has been charged with engaging in an organized criminal activity for the burglary.

The ATF, Waxahachie, and Dallas police officers arrested Kirvin, July 15 after leaving a residence in Dallas. On July 18 Dallas Police then arrested Cherry and Dillard.
