Guns stolen from police officer's car
As for the Assault Weapons on the loose, Dorienne offers this helpful advice:Officials say the thief broke into the vehicle on Barnstable Quay - off of South Lynnhaven Rd. in Virginia Beach - through a window, popped open the trunk and stole a:
M4 ArmaLite semi-automatic rifle,
a loaded Remington 870 shotgun,
60 rounds of M4 ammunition,
and a duffle bag.
Chesapeake police say the items were department issued weapons.
Officer Dorienne M. Boykin, with the Chesapeake Police Department, told WAVY News 10 is a statement, "This is unfortunate incident and these were department issued weapons, and the fact that the guns were locked in the vehicle's trunk is a reasonable safeguard. All officers are responsible for safeguarding their equipment that is issued to them."
Police said the officer did nothing wrong when he put the guns in his trunk. It's a common practice, as long as they are properly secured. What's not secure is the thought of the guns on the street.
Golly!"We just want people to understand that this is not a toy. This is not something to be played with. Its' property of the police department that we need to have returned"
Remember Boys & Girls, "This is not a toy."
