Gun stolen from car recovered after more than 7 years

stolen gun

A traffic stop in Jacksonville on Monday led to the recovery of a gun that was reported stolen more than seven years ago.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the gun was stolen in June 2010 from an unlocked car. Some seven years later, the gun still remained on the streets of Jacksonville. The department noted that in the last two years, over 1,000 guns have been reported stolen from unlocked vehicles.

“These are guns being used in crimes in your community,” the sheriff’s office wrote in Facebook post. “This is UNACCEPTABLE. We can do better.”

The sheriff’s office also seized the opportunity to remind residents to secure valuables in some place other than an unattended car.
