Castle Rock Police investigate burglary at local gun store

An investigation is on-going at Castle Rock’s DCF Guns, following a burglary there early Tuesday morning.  

Around 2 a.m. Tuesday, the store’s alarm company alerted police a door alarm and motion detectors were activated. When police arrived to the store, 1155 Park St., they reported broken glass and a stolen 1998 Jeep Cherokee in the store’s parking lot.

Officers searched for the suspects, but the suspects had already fled the scene. Security video shows four suspects used the stolen Jeep to pull off the front doors of the store around 1:47 a.m. The suspects entered the store, smashed display cases containing handguns and left with an undetermined number of handguns and several semi-automatic sporting rifles.

All suspects were wearing masks, or had clothing covering their face. They left in the light-colored 1990’s Jeep Cherokee.

Castle Rock detectives are working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to process the scene for evidence. The Bureau is investigating whether this incident is linked to other, similar crimes from Denver to Colorado Springs.
