The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

Burglars crashed a ve­hi­cle into the en­trance of Ca­bela’s in Lone Tree and stole nu­mer­ous valu­able guns early Thurs­day morn­ing, au­thor­i­ties say. The smash-and­grab burglars slammed a car into the front, east-side en­trance of the enor­mous build­ing at 10670 Ca­bela Drive at 12:58 a.m.

They ran into the store and quickly snatched nu­mer­ous guns and fled, said Denisse Coff­man, Lone Tree city spokes­woman.

“We don’t know that ex­act num­ber of guns that were taken,” Coff­man said. “We are aware that this has hap­pened at mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions around the state.”

This was the first bur­glary in which thieves smashed a car into a Lone Tree store and stole guns, she said.

Burglars of­ten have used stolen ve­hi­cles to crash into gun stores and pawn shops for easy ac­cess and a quick es­cape. — Kirk Mitchell,
