Two men are arrested after being accused of burglary of a Cape Coral gun store Tuesday.

Cape Coral Police responded to a burglar alarm at Cape Guns located at 3818 Skyline Boulevard around 4:15 Tuesday morning.

After reviewing surveillance video and other evidence, Cape Coral Police along with the ATF went to a home on SW 29th Street with a search warrant. All ten firearms were located and retrieved.

Both Livan Rodriguez-Perez and Jeffrey John Laferlita were arrested and charged with Armed Burglary, Grand Theft of Firearms, and Felony Criminal Mischief. Rodriguez-Perez was additionally charged with Driving with a Suspended License.
