DENVER (AP) — A woman has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for helping her son steal at least 57 guns from a southern Colorado store in 2017. U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn’s office says 35-year-old Jennifer Scoggin was sentenced Thursday to two years and two months in prison after pleading guilty in October to firearms theft.

According to court records, Scoggin lured the owner of Dragon Arms gun store in El Paso County away from the store during the planned burglary. Prosecutors say Scoggin’s son and three other people then broke in and stole handguns, shotguns and rifles.

The store owner has previously told local media that Scoggin is his ex-wife’s daughter.

Three of the burglary co-defendants have received time-served sentences. Prosecutors say all stolen guns were later located.
