Two more unsecured guns were reported stolen yesterday in the Foothills Area Command; one stolen during a residential burglary and the other stolen during an auto burglary. Also a hunting knife was reported stolen, left in an unattended vehicle. If you own a weapon, please take the proper precautions to secure it for the community’s safety. I have a tally of 6 guns stolen in 14 days in the Foothills Area Command alone and just through reported burglaries; there is no way to know if others are being stolen and not reported to APD for various reasons…
