NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – In two separate incidences on Friday, Metro Nashville Police officers had items stolen, including guns, from their marked SUVs parked outside their respective apartments, according to MNPD.
Police said an internal investigation has been launched following the thefts along with a criminal investigation to recover the stolen guns and items and arrest those responsible.
At about 2:30 a.m., an officer’s patrol rifle, helmet and ballistic plates were stolen from his marked SUV parked outside his apartment on Massman Drive, according to police. The stolen items were contained in a carry bag. One of the windows on the vehicle was shattered.
Also in the early morning hours on Friday, police believe at about 4:30 a.m., an officer’s shotgun and riot gear were stolen from his marked MNPD SUV parked outside his apartment on Rice Road. Police said a window was once again broken to steal the items.
Metro Nashville Police said that the guns may not have been left in a secure manner in either of the SUVs.
“May not have been left in a secure manner.” Yeah, no shit, sherlock. And this is after we just spent a couple of weeks of “special legislative session” with Lefties demanding penalties for those who leave guns in cars and get stolen.
And I guess that the recent trend on increasing levels of disrespecting Law Enforcement and not giving a damn about consequences has not reached the ears of some among the MNPD who probably think “Nah, it will never happen to me.”
And now we have 2 long guns floating around to be used in future crimes.
