Littleton gun store robbed

Posted

The Littleton Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating an early morning robbery at a gun store on May 24.

Officers responded to an alarm at Triple J Armory at 311 E. County Line Road just before 2 a.m., discovering that a black Jeep Cherokee had driven through the front of the store. It was later discovered the Jeep had been stolen from Aurora, according to Littleton police.

"Clearly some planning went into this crime," Littleton Police spokesman Cmdr. Trent Cooper said.

The suspects fled the scene in another vehicle prior to officers' arrival, leaving the Jeep abandoned at the scene. Security video showed four suspects entering the store and stealing numerous firearms.

Triple J Armory was robbed last June in similiar fashion, with 29 guns stolen, and a robbery was attempted there in November. Cooper said suspects in the June robbery were later arrested as part of a multi-agency investigation.

Following the June robbery, the store installed concrete posts to prevent vehicles from driving into the window, which Cooper said was instrumental in thwarting the attempt in November.

"They have very good security in this store, better than most," Cooper said.

Cooper said it was not yet clear how many guns, or what type, had been stolen in the latest robbery.
