Southern California police agencies missing 329 weapons - Some of the guns were involved in crimes


SANTA ANA, Calif. — Southern California police agencies have had more than 300 weapons lost or stolen over the past five years.

The Orange County Register reports Sunday that an investigation of 134 state and local police agencies from Kern County to the Mexican border showed 329 firearms were lost or stolen and some were involved in crimes.

The newspaper says the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported that at least 103 of the agency's 20,000 guns were lost or stolen over the past five years.

In Hermosa Beach, the police department conducts an annual internal audit of its weapons, and hasn't lost any.

But many agencies don't track their guns.

California law doesn't require officers to report lost or stolen weapons, but departments voluntarily report missing guns to a state database.

remember during the 68 riots here in chicago at the dem convention,they called in the army and a colonel we believe saw all the conviscated weapons at 11th and state taken off the streets over the years and he went to somebody and asked for some to show as learning tool in some military school he supposedly was in charge of and the city gave him a couple of boxes of weapons he chose,lugers, old west six shooters, sophisticated newer weapons,etc etc etc,found out the good old colonel was selling these toys to friends and giving some away, bottom line colonel was defrocked and went to federal can we were told but nada to the guy who authorized this in the 1st place,Conlisk we believe,,,

Remember a few years ago when over 65% of Mexico City Cops were unarmed because They had sold Their service weapons?

I'd be willing to bet quite a few of those "stolen" guns were valuable collectors items, and the cops set them "aside"
