Police investigating theft of handgun, car

Items worth approximately $80,000 reported stolen from Pleasanton home

Pleasanton police are investigating a burglary in which $80,000 worth of items -- including a handgun -- were reportedly stolen from a residence.

The burglary happened at a home on the 7700 block of Bernal Ave. sometime between 6:45 and 7:45 a.m. Friday, according to police. That morning, an unknown suspect stole a black 1966 Ford Mustang, jewelry and a 9 mm handgun from the residence, items collectively valued at about $80,000.

The victim arrived home that afternoon and discovered they had been robbed, according to Pleasanton officers. Construction workers were at the residence approximately one hour before the theft occurred, but no suspect information was gathered. Police say there were no signs of forced entry and no arrests had been made as of Tuesday afternoon.

Anyone with information can contact the Pleasanton Police Department, 931-5100.

Yet another gun owner who failed to keep their gun properly locked up? Yet another gun now in the hands of the bad guys? Haven't we learned anything from the Kate Steinle case where an innocent person was killed by a gun who was stolen from someone who didn't properly secure their gun? When are we going to start holding irresponsible gun owners accountable for their carelessness behavior which threatens the lives of the rest of the community?

Sam,

What in the world are you saying or thinking. None of what you said is in the article The gun and car were secured and locked in someone's home. Please think before you go on here again.

And another thing An illegal alien killed the poor girl. He was a 7 time convicted felon who should have not even been here. You rage is misdirected at an object rather than a person.

So this is now the liberal spin on the Kate Steinle murder. Wasn't she shot and killed by a man who (1) is a convicted felon, (2) is in the country illegally, and (3) was released from custody due to SF sanctuary-city policies? No, no, no ... apparently we're not supposed to mention WHO did it; apparently, the killer is a stolen gun.

You're the one who isn't making any sense. If the gun had been properly locked in a secure gun safe as any responsible gun owner is supposed to do, then the gun wouldn't have been stolen, would it?

Oh, and furthermore, the word "locked" does not even appear in the article. So,I don't know where you got the idea that the gun and car were "secured and locked".

Sam:
This question is directed at you. If your car is left unlocked and it is stolen and used in a crime or the driver speeds and kills someone, should you, Sam, registered owner, be held responsible? If you say no, why not? If you say yes, how much time should you do if the suspects runs a red light and kills someone?

As far as I know, it is not a law to lock you weapons up in one’s home. But I could be wrong.
