Palmy police apparently can't keep their own police station safe. Eleven guns taken.

Yeah just seen that, Handed in guns and exhibit guns. I like how they stressed there was not any police guns taken, ermmm does it matter they were still guns and 11 of them.

 

Makes them look pretty stupid. Somebody is going to be in trouble somewhere and not just the guy who took them.

That part about exhibit guns got me. Any slick lawyer could probably get their client off because the chain of evidence has been broken.

Apparently Police could not attend for 24-48 hours, but they did give a reporting number for their insurance company.

I guess the guy was planning on selling the gnus back as part of the buy-back 😆

They found the guy. Still looking for the guns. Gee, I wonder where they could be? Not the police station, that's for sure.

Guess he doesn't just stash them in a closest.

Ironic that they are generally not stolen from private users, but the oh-so-much-holier-than-thou police cannot manage to keep them safe.'

If that happened to a private user, they would promptly lose their licence, I wonder what will happen to the police....

as a private user, i seem to recall a mr policeman checking out the safe to ensure everything was up to spec and locked away before they would say I'm responsable.

 

 

 

Double standards?

Yup makes them look very incompetent indeed. Reminds me of the old black and white key stone cops hahahah. Its going to hit the fan if any of the fire arms are used in a crime.

Presuming that Palmy stations reception area is secure and you can not gain entry to the rest of the station from that area like every cop shop I have ever been. How was he in the main staff area of the station.

 

Or did he gain entry and exit via the back vehicle entry ❓❓❓

 

I noticed on the news1 item that the reporter was standing outside the drive through gate which opened and closed during the report. Now I know they open on entry from the vehicle but do they open from the vehicle on exit or is it just an eye beam on exit. ❓

So, how much faith do we have in the cops being able to protect the inevitable firearms register when it is introduced?  Might as well put a sign up on my house saying "firearms inside - please don't burgle them, nice gang members"

Crap loads of them are stolen from private users on a regular basis. That's how most guns find their way onto the black market.
