There has been a spate of break-ins on Tallahassee's east side, and deputies say the burglars have a taste for guns.

At least four firearms have been stolen in break-ins off Louvenia Drive.

The burglars have struck four times already and tried twice more, and detectives say once they find guns in a house, they try them out.

"They're actually test firing them into the walls of the house," said Leon County Sheriff's Office DET Joel Weaver. "We've retrieved the spent cartridges from inside the walls."

One resident spotted the thieves in action wearing latex gloves and driving a low rider Chevy truck that's blue with chrome rims, but deputies have yet to catch them.
