Gun, ammo stolen from Md. cop car

The advice on avoiding car break-ins is pretty clear by clicking the "Don't Forget" link at the bottom of the Montgomery County Police Department's home page:

"Remove electronics, their accessories and other valuables from view or even better, take them with you."

Nobody's perfect.

Sometime Monday night or Tuesday morning, a thief broke into an unmarked police vehicle parked outside the officer's home in the 2500 block of Sapling Ridge Drive in Brookeville, about 12 miles north of the Capital Beltway.

The thief took a Colt M-4 Rifle, two loaded M-4 magazines, two sets of handcuffs, two Montgomery County Police badges, an ASP baton and two loaded .40-caliber Glock magazines, according to the department.

"It is not a normal practice or policy of the Montgomery County Police Department officers and detectives to store their weapons and other serialized equipment overnight in a marked or unmarked police vehicle," police said in a statement.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the crime to call 240-773-5530 or 301-279-8000. Anonymous callers can use 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

I recommend that the Moco police charge his dumn butt and have him tried in court,but then again some of his pointy headed cronys are probably on the Internal Review Board.
