Licensed firearm stolen from locked vehicle as owner and his family enjoy a swim at Darkwood Beach

(Real News)- A licensed firearm is now on the street after having been stolen from
the owner.

Reports say the Scotts Hill man telephoned the Bolans Police
Station and reported that some unknown person(s) had broken into
his jeep and stolen his gun.

This offence reportedly occurred at Darkwood Beach sometime
between 9:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on December 31, 2023.

Reports say the man and his family went to the beach, having parked
his Kia Sportage on the northern side of the shore facing west.

He reportedly secured the vehicle and locked his .380 Beretta under
the driver’s seat, and they all went for a swim.

However, when he returned to his jeep at about 10:30 a.m., he
discovered that the glass of the left back passenger door had been
broken and his firearm stolen from where it had been hidden.

Apparently, the perpetrator had used a hard object to break the
glass and then had pushed a hand through the broken window in
order to open the door and remove the weapon.

A search was carried out by the Police for any suspicious person(s)
and the firearm, but without success.
