SOUTHERN COLORADO (KRDO) -- It was like a scene from a wild west movie: masked robbers approach a store, and aim their guns, only there were no stand-ins or stunt doubles.
El Paso County Sheriff's Detectives are seeking the public's help to find a trio of suspects who targeted a pawn shop in the 300 block of Main Street in Security-Widefield. The crime happened Saturday, March 5, at 11:07 a.m.
The proprietor had already installed security bars on the outside windows; however, that did little in the way of deterring the suspects. It's hoped that security cameras will help capture the men.
The primary suspect, flanked by two others, opened the front door. But twice it appears as though his weapon malfunctioned: he's seen emptying the clip and putting it back. Either out of frustration or freight, the two other suspects started to back away. The main suspect then started to leave, but not before pinching off a solo round that would hit and shatter a display case inside not far from a store employee.
No one was hurt.
Witnesses told detectives they saw the three suspects get into a gray Honda sedan, with temporary license plates. It was driven by a fourth suspect.
