Stealth Storage

The police chief of a Central California city is urging residents to secure their firearms as a way of fighting crime.

“Lock them up,” Manteca Police Chief Nick Obligacion said.

The chief says he supports the right to bear arms but would like to see more law-abiding gun owners use safes to lock up their weapons. He said 90% of the 38 guns his department has taken off the streets recently are guns that were stolen in burglaries.

“A gang member doesn’t go into Big 5 or Bass Pro and say, ‘Hey, can I have that 357 off the shelf? I’m going to do a drive-by and wait 15 days to do the drive by.’ It’s a gun that’s been stolen off the street,” Obligacion said.
