Suburban Denver robbery unravels after suspect drops gun

September 4, 2018

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — A fumbled gun ended an attempted robbery in suburban Denver.

Surveillance video shows the man pulling the weapon — which turned out to be an airsoft gun— out of his waistband and then quickly dropping it behind the counter at an E-Cig of Denver store in Aurora on Sunday. The would-be robber started to hop over to get it but the employee picked it up and he bolted.

The unidentified suspect was wearing sunglasses, a Colorado Rockies hat, Denver Broncos sweatshirt as well as gloves.

Aurora police spokeswoman Crystal McCoy said Tuesday no arrests have been made.

Store owner Chris Burgess told KDVR-TV the suspect likely never held up a store and hopefully won’t do it again now.
