    Stolen Kel-Tec coming home.

    A coworker of mine, daily carries a P3AT, his wife was wanting a P32. About 6 months ago, he went out at lunch to pickup the brand new P32, he had purchased as a surprise for his wife. When he got back to the shop he showed it to me, then locked it up in his briefcase, which he put behind the seat in his van. When we went out to the parking lot to go home, one of the windows in his van was busted out and the briefcase was gone. Now where the shop is, we've never had any problems during the day, at night it can be a little sketchy though, in hindsight he should've brought the case inside. Anyway, the other day,someone from the DA's office called him and told him, they picked up a thug who was in posession of the stolen Kel-Tec, so he will be getting it back, the only question is when. It could be a year or so before they get all the charges sorted out on this punk, but at least the gun will be returned to it's rightful owner.

    Maybe one of the LEO's can comment but I don't understand why pictures can't be taken and a paper trail created so that the gun can be immediately returned to the rightful owner.

    Hope the punk didn't shoot anyone with it. Could be a pain for the origional owner. imo

    I'm glad your friend is getting his gun back and the punk was caught.

    We were robbed a few years ago. The LEOs recovered my Winchester 30-30 but it was connected to a counterfeiting bust so I didn't think I'd ever see it again. Over a year later, I got a call saying I could come pick it up. The wood was scratched up and the whole thing was covered with fingerprinting powder but I got it back. After a good cleaning and refinishing the wood, it's as good as new.

    Had that happen to me about 10 years ago. Lucky for me the father of the thug found my gun and turned it as well as his son in and I got it back in about a week as the LEO did take pics of my gun before returning it to me. I'm glad your friend is getting it back.
    Best,

    It's always good to hear news like that.
    Back in the late eighties, I got cleaned out while I was at work. Included in my losses was a brand new, never fired Rem 700, and my all time favorite, a S&W Mod 19.
    I was fortunate in that I got back a Rem 870, but that's all. It turns out that a neighbor was the culprit. About a year later, the police arrested her on drug charges. When they went to arrest her, she pulled my 870 on them. Luckily, her bite didn't correspond with her bark.

    Advice:
    Document all of your serial numbers and keep them in a safe place. It is difficult to obtain them after the fact. Photos are good too.

    "Best Evidence Rule"

    It basically states that whatever available evidence is the most accurate (or ORIGINAL) must be admitted in favor of any replica of that item of evidence.

    Mind you, it might be possible to admit photographs, IF the defendant and/or his attorney stipulate that the photographs accurately depict the firearm which was seized by police from the defendant. If this were to occur, the firearm could be released to the owner before trial.

    Think about that for a moment, though. It would require the defendant to basically say, yeah, that's the gun the cops found on me.

    (instead of, "Pigs PLANTED that on me! I wuz FRAMED!")
