Four handguns hidden in floor discovered missing

A hiding place in a cutout in the floor of a closet was not enough to keep thieves from taking four handguns from a Central Avenue home.

The resident told police the area was hidden under a rug in a closet and covered with tool boxes. He had a Smith & Wesson .357, Garcia .380, Intratec 9 mm and Desert Eagle .44 magnum in the hiding place.

He discovered the guns missing late Saturday afternoon, but does not know when they might have been taken. He told police whoever took the guns restored the hidden area, so no one would suspect it had been entered.
