SAPD Urges Gun Owners to Keep Guns Out of Vehicles


SAN ANGELO, TX-- The San Angelo Police Department is urging people to keep their guns out of their vehicles.

Since January first six reports of firearm thefts have been reported from burglaries. Of those six, five of them have been taken with no signs of forced entry.

"Owning a firearm is a great responsibility and stolen firearms could be used to harm innocent people and children," said the SAPD Facebook Page. "Please help us keep your firearms from circulating on the black market. Never leave your unsecured firearm in an unsecured vehicle. If you must leave them in your vehicle, please store them in a hidden/ secured locked box."

Remember your vehicle is not a gun safe, so make sure to keep them safe and in the right hands.

If you think that your vehicle may have been broken into call Police immediately.
