Shortly after 1:40PM on 5 July, officers responded to a report of a burglary at an address on North Side Road. It was reported that someone had broken into a residence and stolen a brown and black Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun, belonging to a licensed firearm owner, sometime between 7:30PM on Monday, 4 July, and 1:30PM on Tuesday, 5 July.
“The theft of a firearm in this manner is extremely concerning, as it can potentially be used in illegal activity and presents an additional danger to the public,” says Superintendent Peter Lansdown. “We strongly appeal for anyone who may have knowledge of this weapon being sold or stored by anyone to come forward and provide information immediately.”
The matter is currently under investigation and anyone with any information is asked to contact Bodden Town CID at 947-2220.
