Rifles, shotgun stolen from townhome over weekend
Three rifles, a shotgun and other weapons were reported stolen from a townhouse in the 1300 block of Sparta Plaza during the weekend.
Steamboat Springs police Capt. Joel Rae said the townhome was burglarized between 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. Sunday. The incident was reported at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
Police think someone forced their way through the front door of the home before stealing the firearms. Stolen items include a British 308 rifle, a Browning 280 rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun and a MAC-90 gun, Rae said. A compound bow also was taken. The worth of the stolen items exceeds $1,500.
Rae said it is likely the thief knew the guns were in the home before the burglary occurred. The incident remains under investigation.
