EDMONTON- Police are investigating the theft of six decommissioned machine guns from an army surplus and hunting gear store in Edmonton.

The store's owner estimates about 45-thousand dollars in merchandise was stolen from the store early Saturday.

The thieves smashed glass cases and stole the weapons including a rare MAG-58 machine gun that could be the only collector piece of its kind in Canada.

It appears they could not access the store's more secure inventory of functional guns.

A police spokesman says the stolen guns cannot be fired.
