Robbery attempt fails as suspect fumbles gun, flees

AURORA, Colo. -- Police are investigating an attempted robbery at an E-Cig of Denver store in Aurora.

The owner of the business says it happened about 5:30 p.m. Sunday, and was all caught on camera.

In the video, the suspect walks up to the counter and pulls out what the owner and employee later identified as an Airsoft, or BB gun.

As the footage continues, the suspect fumbles the gun, tries to hop the counter, but the employee picks up the weapon, forcing the suspect to take off running.

While the suspect was wearing gloves, the store's owner hopes the evidence left behind will help police.

"There were no fingerprints in the store, but definitely on the firearm itself, you know the clip and everything they got fingerprints off of that," said E-Cig of Denver owner Chris Burgess.

Anyone with information about this suspect is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
