LITTLETON, Colo. — A sophisticated burglary in Littleton is the latest in a rash of gun store thefts in Colorado. Thieves made off with 27 rifles and long guns from Warhorse Firearms of the Rockies. 

Police say they're looking for three suspects who drove a dark-colored, 2-door Honda with a black spoiler on the back out of Aurora. They say the suspects broke the showroom window of the first-floor motorsports store, then made their way upstairs to the gun shop.

Three other calls for robberies rang out at the same time, and police are working to learn if the other calls were planned to distract from the gun store burglary. 

The suspects were last seen heading northbound on Santa Fe, and police say they are working with other jurisdictions to help locate those responsible.

If you know anything that could help police in their investigation, you are asked to call the Littleton Police Division at (303) 795-3890.
