LAKEWOOD – According to Lakewood Police, thieves used a stolen cement truck to rip the doors off a gun shop Monday.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the truck still outside and 14 handguns missing.

Surveillance video showed the suspects wearing gloves at the time of the robbery, but not much else.

This is not the first time the gun shop had been targeted. The owner had installed cement barriers in front of the building to deter thieves. Despite the barriers, the thieves were still able to rip the doors open.

No further information has been released at this time.
