    Good: Stolen Firearms Found

    Here is an local article. They have been looking for a home invasion suspect. A tip sent them to what they called a "stash house" they found several stolen firearms from car burglaries and some Border Patrol equipment. This is why I thought the article would be of interest. Unsecured equipment in vehicle and maybe he is looking to use BP stuff for more home invasions on illegals?

    Lubbock police seize stash of stolen weaponsBy Logan G. Carver | AVALANCHE-JOURNAL

    Lubbock police confiscated a small arsenal of stolen firearms Thursday while attempting to arrest a man wanted for a March home invasion.

    A Crime Line tip led the department's Special Duty unit to look for Daniel Reyna at a home at 310 38th St., where the officers discovered a cache of stolen goods, police Capt. Greg Stevens said.

    Police performed surveillance on the home, which they are calling a "stash house" for stolen property, before entering to search for Reyna.

    Police arrested 20-year-old Josue Josh Reyna and 19-year-old Melissa Barron on cocaine possession charges.

    Both had unrelated outstanding arrest warrants, Stevens said.

    Detectives were still working to determine whether Josue Josh Reyna or Barron would be charged in relation to the stolen property.

    Daniel Reyna, 21, remained at large Thursday evening.

    Authorities were still looking for Daniel Reyna and Sergio Gonzalez, 22, who are both wanted for a March 21 home invasion in the 1700 block of 48th Street. Police identified them after the resident's personal surveillance equipment captured the robbery on video.

    Gonzalez and Daniel Reyna both were recently indicted for the 48th Street invasion. Gonzalez also was indicted in a March 11 robbery at Koko Inn.

    Property Crimes detectives cleared 11 vehicle burglaries and confiscated nine rifles, seven pistols, power tools, electronics and televisions, Stevens said.

    All the property was confirmed stolen, Stevens said.

    Detectives also found a bullet-resistant vest and jackets with law enforcement insignias stolen from a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle in San Angelo.

    The stolen Border Patrol property was returned to the agency Thursday afternoon.

    Stevens said detectives expected to clear more burglaries, but implored Lubbock residents not to inundate the department with calls asking about the status of their individual property because it would slow the process for detectives.

    He said detectives would contact the owners of the seized property.

    The seizure had a significant impact because the majority of armed, violent crimes are committed using guns that are not obtained legally, Stevens said.

    "These firearms truly are being taken out of the hands of criminals," Stevens said.

    He recommended never leaving a firearm in a vehicle because it can turn a burglar into an armed burglar in an instant.

    Police were still seeking any information related to the whereabouts of Gonzalez and Daniel Reyna and considered them armed and violent.

    Police urge anyone with information about any of the home invasions or the whereabouts of Gonzalez and Daniel Reyna to call Crime Line at 741-1000. Callers may remain anonymous.

    Oh boy, there's a job opening in the editing department now for that one.

    Don't they know they can't print that sort of accurate and factual information? This is just going to befuddle the antis and get them in a froth.

    Good read. Surprising read.

    My question is, if they have been indicted on two other crimes already, and have warrants out, why are they on the streets?

    That was exactly what I thought when I read that line. Unfortunately, I think we will need to see a few thousand more articles written in this manner before we start to see a real turn in public opinion.

    I would say it is because our "new" jail is about 2 years behind schedule. Might be more I would have to check. We can only house so many and with the budget the way it is we won't be shipping them off and paying for someone else to house them. Sad but true.
