The Columbia Police Dept. says 126 guns have been reported stolen in town this year, as of Dec. 4. Deputy Chief Jill Schlude says, if you have a gun in your car, lock your doors, and put it in a mounted, secured lock box.
“It’s really just like a lottery ticket, honestly,” Schlude says. “I think there are just X numbers of cars, what’s the chance that I’m going to find a gun. Sounds like pretty good here in Columbia lately, or we have some really lucky thieves.”
