SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department documented 64 cases of firearms stolen from vehicles since the beginning of this year. Only nine have since been recovered. That leaves 55 still outstanding and unaccounted for.
In support of the YWCA’s Week Without Violence the Salt Lake City Police Department would like to remind gun owners to take steps to keep firearms from getting into the wrong hands.
Some things to remember are:
Keep guns in a safe or with child resistant locks on them
Don’t leave your firearm unsecured in a vehicle
Document your serial numbers to assist law enforcement in recovering stolen firearms
