Increased Thefts Of Guns From Cars

Gun found at Tampa International

Houston police say an increasing number of guns are being stolen from cars.

Data from the HPD Auto Theft Crimes Task Force show more than two-thousand guns have been stolen from cars in Houston in the past ten months, an increase of 21-percent over last year.

Police say thieves look for things like NRA bumper stickers, or stickers indicating a brand of firearm when looking for a gun-owner's car to break into.

They also follow shooters from gun ranges and steal the guns at the next stop.
