Authorities are hoping for the public's help in tracking down multiple criminals who stole about 10 long guns from a Colorado Springs store.
At about 3:45 in the morning on Oct. 18, multiple suspects were caught on camera stealing from Big Jim's Loans III Pawn Shop at 5825 Galley Road just off of E. Platte Avenue.
