COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Burglars stole more than 60 firearms from a Colorado gun range and dealer, but police were able to recover most of the weapons.

The guns, including some fully automatic weapons, were taken from the Dragonmans near Colorado Springs on Sunday night.

Owner Mel Bernstein says four thieves used a truck to smash through the front gate and garage door. He says at least two of the thieves were apprehended Monday.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spokeswoman Lisa Meiman said Monday afternoon that most of the gun had been recovered.

Bernstein says the thieves caused about $3,000 in property damage.
