Gun safe targeted in home burglary after being outed by Journal News map

Two men broke into a home listed on the Journal News map and specifically targeted the gun safe. The police have one man in custody and are investigating if the map published by the Journal News was used to identify and target the house.

Considering the burglars were unsuccessful at retrieving the guns from the gun safe, it sounds to me like an amateur operation where a couple of men found the house on the map and thought they’d give it a shot. If so, I sincerely hope the Journal News is held accountable as well as the burglars.
