REF:       Bullet Hole Burglary

The Holland Police are investigating a burglary at the Bullet Hole, 15 Waverly Rd, which occurred during the night.

Shortly before 4:00 a.m., officers of the Holland Department of Public Safety and the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office responded to the store on an alarm.  Arriving units observed a silver Ford SUV partially in the building.  The vehicle had been used to ram the building and gain access into the business.     

Officers checked the interior but the suspects had already fled the scene.  The silver Ford had previously been reported stolen out of Grand Rapids.  An undetermined number of firearms were stolen from the store.

Surveillance video from inside the store shows four subjects who had entered the store after the SUV had rammed through the front of the store.  All were wearing masks, but appear to all be males.  No further description is available at this time.  

Anyone who has information that may help in this investigation is asked to contact the Holland Department of Public Safety at (616) 355-1150 or email investigators at  Persons wishing to remain anonymous may contact Silent Observer by calling 1-877-887-4536, texting OCMTIP and your message to 274637 or you may go online and submit a tip using the online form at
