Robbing a Gun Store
Lakewood, Colorado, Police are concerned about the nature of a gun store Robbery C.R.S. 18-4-301. The robbery happened in broad daylight, after a suspect asked to see a semi-automatic 9-mm Glock handgun and an AR-15 hunting rifle. When the counter attendant became distracted for a short time, the suspect walked toward the end of the store, and then out the door, where a stolen vehicle was waiting a few feet away. If the suspects involved in the robbery are former felons, they will probably be charged with possession of a weapon by a previous offender, as well. The police later recovered the vehicle, but the suspect and the driver were nowhere to be found. According to 9News, police are still looking for the suspects.
Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft and Firearm Rights
The suspects will certainly be charged with Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft, C.R.S. 18-4-409, simply because they used the vehicle in committing of another crime. If the vehicle is worth more than $20,000, the offense is a class-3 felony (could result in 4-12 years in prison), if less than $20,000 the crime is a class-4 felony (2-8 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections).
