The AR-15 rifle was stolen about 9 p.m. from the trunk of a police car that was parked and locked in the South of Market area, police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. The officers using the vehicle were working nearby when the theft occurred, Andraychak said.

The officers assigned to the burglarized vehicle did not appear to break any rules, Andraychak said.

“From what I see, they locked the vehicle and they secured the weapon appropriately,” he said.

Even so, Andraychak said, the department will examine whether any changes need to be made to ensure police weapons don’t land in the wrong hands.

“As part of the investigation, we will also be looking at our policies and procedures,” Andraychak said.
