LITTLETON, Colo. – Police are searching for suspects after a smash-and-grab robbery at a Littleton gun store that is no stranger to thieves.

The burglary occurred at the Triple J Armory near East County Line Road and Broadway around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said four male suspects used a Jeep, reported stolen out of Aurora, to ram through the front of the store. It’s unclear how many guns the suspects made off with.

Police said the suspects left the Jeep at the scene and fled in another vehicle.

This is the second burglary in less than a year at the Triple J Armory. In June 2016, thieves stole 20 to 30 guns from the store. A third burglary attempt in November was not successful.
