WHITE PLAINS - A White Plains home that is listed on a publicized handgun permit database was burglarized last night.
 
Officials say the target of the burglary was the homeowner's gun case.
 
Police are trying to determine if the break-in was a result of the homeowner's name and address being published by the Journal News last month, along with thousands of other registered gun owners.

Officials say two burglars used a ladder to break into the home to try and steal legally owned guns out of the homeowner's safe.
