Taft police officer has guns stolen from auto in Oakland

Two guns were stolen in Oakland from an off-duty officer's gun on Monday morning, police said.

The incident happened as the officers headed west on International Boulevard around 3:45 a.m.to serve as backup in a traffic stop involving suspects in an earlier shooting, said Officer Johnna Watson, a spokeswoman for the Oakland Police Department.

Watson said, "The Oakland Police Department understands the seriousness of the items that were taken in this auto burglary". There are some restaurants and hotels in the area.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill a year ago requiring police officers to lock away guns left in unattended vehicles in secure, hidden spaces, such as a small gun safe in the trunk. Officers who fail to do that can be cited with an infraction and a $1,000 fine.

Monday's incident follows last week's announcement by the San Francisco Sheriff's Department a deputy's gun was stolen from a rental vehicle parked in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood.

But the trend appears to be continuing.

Police say the injured officers were transported to the hospital in stable condition. Days later, a gun was stolen from the vehicle of a San Francisco Sheriff's deputy.

She said the officer was traveling on business in an unmarked city of Taft vehicle.

Anyone with information on the crime may contact the Oakland Police Burglary Unit at 510-238-3951.
