4 guns stolen from Parker store

PARKER, Colo. -- A gun store in Parker was burglarized shortly after midnight on Saturday, the Parker Police Department said.

It happened at Pony Express Firearms (10970 S. Parker Road).

Police said an unknown number of suspects broke the front glass windows of the store and reached through the metal bars.

"It looks like somebody threw a couple of river rock through the front panes, didn't actually come into the shop but stuck their arm in far enough to steal four guns off the wall," employee Jim Burrus said.

The suspects got away with two AK-47 rifles, one AR-15 rifle and one shotgun, police said.

"Now you have four very dangerous weapons in the hands of people who they should not have these weapons. They're in the hands of criminals right now," Parker police spokesman Chris Peters said.

No descriptions of the suspects were available. Police are continuing to investigate.

Police said they have surveillance footage of the theft, but it only shows the arm of whoever stole the guns.

Anyone with information is asked to call Parker police at 303-841-9800.
