Up to 60 firearms stolen

Two gun store burglaries reported in two days

By Corinne Westeman

About 30 handguns were stolen early Tuesday from a gun shop in a strip mall on West Bowles Avenue, and another gun store to the east in Littleton was burglarized the next day. 

Sheriff's spokesman Mark Techmeyer confirmed burglars tripped a silent alarm at Colorado Gun Broker, 8966 W. Bowles Ave., at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday. Deputies reportedly arrived within five minutes, but the perpetrators were gone.

Techmeyer said the gun store's surveillance cameras weren't operating during the break-in, but other cameras in the strip mall were being checked.
