According to a news release, the burglary happened Saturday between the hours of 12:40 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Burglars shattered a window to enter the museum, repair crews told ABC 27.

Harrisburg police are working with museum officials to determine what items are missing in addition to the firearms.

The National Rifle Association held an event called “Guns and Lace” on Wednesday. Capt. Olivera said it was undetermined if guns missing were from that exhibit.

About a dozen people protested the event calling it racially insensitive because the exhibit included a gun from a Confederate guerrilla leader as reported by ABC27 News. 

Anyone with information can also call police at 717-558- 6900.

Dauphin County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for any information leading to an arrest.
