Guns Stolen In Christmas Eve Burglary In Montrose, Colorado: Who Is This?
Authorities in Montrose are asking for the public's help in solving a crime on Christmas Eve.
While many folks were getting ready to open presents on Christmas Eve, somebody was opening something that didn't belong to him - a pawn shop. Perhaps you can help authorities in Montrose solve this crime.
Pawn Shop Break-In
According to the Montrose County Sheriff's Office, a male subject broke into Charlie Golf One Pawn and Gun on Main Street in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve. The man forcibly damaged protective containers and stole several handguns before taking off.

It appears from the photos the man acted alone, although we can't be sure he didn't have a colleague waiting outside in a getaway vehicle. It would seem there is nobody else in the store besides this one individual.
Appears Guilty, But Presumed Innocent
