Garner Police Rifle Stolen from Off-Duty Police Car

Post Date:02/13/2019 1:48 PM

Garner Police investigators are working collaboratively with the Johnston County Sheriff's office on the investigation into a Garner Police rifle that was stolen out of an off-duty officer's patrol vehicle.  The incident occurred late Monday night into Tuesday morning after the officer got off work;  the vehicle was parked in the driveway of the officer's Johnston County home.  The weapon, a police patrol rifle, was secured in a locked gun rack.  The unknown suspects broke out a window of the patrol car and took the rifle.  

"We are working with our Johnston County partners to find the person or persons responsible for breaking into a police car parked at an officer's home and then stealing his weapon," said Garner Police Chief Brandon Zuidema.  "We are also looking into how this individual defeated the secure/locked gun rack that the weapon was in.  We have taken steps in the meantime to make sure officer's weapons remain secure while officers are off-duty."

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Garner Police Department at 919.772.8810 or the Johnston County Sheriff's Department at 919.989.5010.
