Seven guns and ammunition were reported stolen during one residential burglary in the Foothills yesterday. Again, I will keep on posting about this issue: secure your firearms when not in use! The residential burglary incident reported yesterday boosted our tally up to 15 firearms stolen in the Foothills Area Command from May 1 – May 18th. If you are not using your weapon, please secure it to prevent against theft, but also to keep that weapon away from a child or grandchild to prevent any accidental discharges or tragedies in your home or vehicle. May’s tally so far now brings us to 7 guns reported stolen from vehicles and 8 stolen during two residential burglaries.
