DENVER — Surveillance video released by Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office shows nine suspects targeting several gun stores across the Denver metro area.

The burglaries happened in the early morning hours on July 9 and July 10 at five gun stores in Centennial, Denver and Englewood, according to the sheriff’s office.

The first attempted burglary happened at Centennial Gun Club, in the 11800 block of E. Peakview. At around 12:05 a.m., deputies discovered a smashed window at the gun club.

Surveillance video showed nine suspects attempting to break into the gun club, but were not successful.

That same morning, the suspects allegedly broke into Bowers Tactical in the 6900 block of S. Yosemite Street in Centennial.

Deputies said they found a metal cover on the front door gone and the glass doors broken.

Surveillance video at the store showed the nine suspects allegedly stealing ammunition, AR-15 uppers and plate carriers, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
