LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – Lakewood police on Wednesday arrest two people after an attempted smash and grab at a gun store.
Just before 3 a.m. thieves rammed a stolen car through the front door of The Gun Room near the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Carr Street in Lakewood. The owner told CBS4 this is the second time his shop has been hit.
Barriers in the front of the store helped stop the thieves from getting in.
The crime caused about $30,000 worth of damage to the store.
Agents started to check other gun stores in the area and found two cars in the parking lot of Green Mountain Guns on Yarrow Street, six miles south of The Gun Room. They say a man went up to the front door and tried to pull on the doors there.
“An agent went to watch another gun store in south Lakewood and saw two vehicles pull into the lot at about four in the morning. Someone got out of the vehicles and tried to doors of the gun store,” said Lakewood Police spokeswoman Lindsay Jones.
Officers ended up arresting two people, Cortez Dennis and Travell Young.
Both cars were stolen.
