On Sept. 4, at approximately 5:32 a.m., St. Louis County Police officers assigned to the city of Fenton precinct responded to Denny Dennis Sporting Goods, located at 1 Gravois Road, for a call for a business burglary.
The investigation thus far has revealed the suspect or suspects gained entry to the business at approximately 5 a.m. by ramming a vehicle through a garage door. Over 20 firearms were stolen in the burglary.
The incident is being investigated by the St. Louis County Police Department’s Bureau Crimes Against Property.
Detectives are requesting the public’s assistance in the investigation as numerous citizens were believed to be in the area at the time of the burglary. Construction in the area forces morning commuters along Water Street, the street that the garage faces, and it is likely they saw a suspicious vehicle present there.
