Eight guns, a computer and jewelry valued at $12,500 were reported missing from a southeast Edmond home, police said.
On July 22, Edmond Police Officer William Wright was dispatched in reference to a residential burglary at a home on Broken Bow Court, according to a report filed by Wright.
A resident who had just come home from the lake noticed the back door was open and two handguns, five shotguns and one rifle were missing, police said. The owner said they were insured with the National Rifle Association and he would be able to get the serial numbers on the missing guns.
Police said a technical investigator photographed the scene and lifted two fingerprints — one from the glass door of the gun cabinet and one from a rifle lying on the floor in the bedroom.
Police listed the missing guns as: A 1907 U.S. government Colt .45 valued at $800, a .22-caliber Ruger valued at $400, a Sako 7mm “Mag” valued at $900, a Browning Belgium 12-gauge valued at $2,000, a Browning light weight 20-gauge valued at $2,000, a Browning 20-gauge pump bottom ejection valued at $700 and a .22-caliber Ruger pistol with a loose grip valued at $300.
A $1,000 laptop, a $300 watch and $1,000 worth of jewelry also were reported missing, police said.
Regarding the burglary, Edmond Police Department spokeswoman Jenny Monroe said the best advice when a resident goes out of town is to tell a neighbor so they can watch your house for any activity.
“Obviously that is not a guarantee something won’t happen, but could help,” Monroe said. “This family had the guns in a gun safe, which is recommended.”
