Police say a machine gun, AR-15s and AK-47s were among those weapons stolen. Most of the weapons stolen, including the machine gun, were recovered by ATF agents and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.

An inventory is still underway to determine if any stolen firearms are still missing. The ATF hasn’t released any information about the suspects.
