Green Mountain Guns store targeted by robbers

For the second time, the Green Mountain Guns store in Lakewood was targeted by robbers — except this time the store lost at least 14 guns.

According to the Lakewood Police Department, thieves entered the gun store, located at 3355 S. Yarrow St., by using a stolen cement truck and either a chain, or a cable. When police arrived, the truck was still running, as was the concrete mixing drum. The robbery took place at around 4:20 a.m. on Dec. 4, and police are going through surveillance video, searching for what the suspects may look like.

As of Dec. 4, police were still taking inventory losses. Last year, robbers attempted to enter the gun store by using a stolen Jeep, but they were unsuccessful.

The Denver Post reported that the owners of Green Mountain Guns had previously installed concrete barriers in front of the store.

The company’s website says the family-operated business sells new and used firearms, offers consignment sales and training classes.
