    Three guns were stolen from the Chamblee police chief’s city-issued SUV during a rash of car break-ins at an apartment complex late last month, according to police records, though it isagainst department policy to store firearms in vehicles

    Chief Kerry Thomas’ personal and city vehicle were two of 23 vehicles broken into early on March 26 at the luxury Windsor Parkview apartments on Peachtree Boulevard, Chamblee police reports state.

    A .270 Remington rifle with scope, a .22 long rifle and Browning 12-gauge shotgun were stolen from the department-owned 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe, which is an unmarked police unit, according to a report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Chamblee’s police conduct policies state that officers may not leave guns in unattended, parked vehicles. Records show the chief reviewed the policy on take-home vehicles and signed off on it March 24, just two days before the break-ins.

    City of Chamblee spokeswoman Tisa Moore said the apparent policy violation is a “personnel matter that has been addressed,” though she did not specify how it was resolved.

    The policy handbook states that “any violations of this, or any other policy … will result in disciplinary action against the officer that could result in a loss or suspension of assigned vehicle privileges, or any other progressive discipline.” Thomas was not available for comment.

    The police report did not say how Thomas’ guns were stored or whether they were the property of the police department.

    Also stolen from the city-issued Tahoe were 34 rounds of ammunition, two 9 mm Glock magazines, a police baton, duty belt, handcuffs, bulletproof vests and badges from the Savannah Police Department, the report states. The front passenger seat window had been busted. Thomas was the assistant police chief in Savannah before coming to Chamblee in 2018."

    Sounds like someone’s personal hunting guns unless the Popo has gone to .22lr.

    I know nothing about this. BTW, I've got a new 12 gauge, .270, and .22 for sail if anyone is interested.

    My wife will not carry if she has to get it out of the car everyday .... I know . She ain't all together lazy though, it's mostly the attitude "I don't know why I gotta have a gun all the time, nothings ever happened to me that I needed a gun" BlahBlahBlah :puke: .... so i got her the least expensive option .

    Those lost shields are our problem - I bet half the SPD wants to go in hot, with GBI and/or Federal backup.
