PHOENIX -- Three dozen firearms were stolen from a Phoenix pawn shop earlier this week and authorities are asking for the public's help to identify the suspects.

According to authorities, three unknown males forced entry into EZ Money Pawn near Glendale and 27th avenues between 1:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. Monday.

The Phoenix Police Department and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded to the store, which is a licensed gun dealer.

Approximately 36 handguns were stolen.
