Burglars who hit a condominium atop a downtown Atlanta luxury hotel on Christmas Day made off with high-end luggage with cash and guns inside, Channel 2 Action News reported Tuesday.

Surveillance video shows the people who police say made off with about $300,000 in goods from the W hotel on Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard.

Police said the condo is owned by the head of a record label that represents local rappers. A relative of the man is living in the unit.

The thieves got two handguns and an AR-15, according to authorities.

“We want to try to obtain any information we can about the firearms,” such as serial numbers and descriptions, Atlanta police spokesman Donald Hannah said. “If they come up at any other point, we can tie them to this as well."
