Glock Stolen in Super Bowl Sunday Burglary
Gun owner home 45 minutes after watching Super Bowl at casino before he noticed his apartment had been robbed, police say.
After a day enjoying Super Bowl Sunday at an Indiana casino, a 30-year-old man returned to his apartment on the 4000 bock of West 93rd Place on Feb. 6, only to discover that he had been robbed.
The men left for the casino the day before around 4:15 p.m. He told police he left the casino around 3 a.m. and stopped to buy gas and smokes. When he got home, he cleaned out his car in the garage and left the trunk and doors open.
Oak Lawn police said the man went into his apartment but got sidetracked on the computer. He didn’t notice anything amiss because he didn’t turn the lights on.
About 45 minutes later, he switched on the lights and noticed his desk drawers open, along with all the kitchen cabinets and the bureaus in the bedroom. A loaded Glock, holster, loaded magazines, carrying case and ear protection were missing from a safe in the bedroom closet.
Police found the magazines and holster elsewhere in the apartment. A neighbor told police that on Jan. 28, the man knocked on her door and asked if she heard gunshots. He then walked to her patio door to look out the windows and explained he had shot a raccoon in his storage unit. The neighbor told him she hadn’t heard anything and the man left.
Another day, the neighbor was on the porch and the man pulled up in his car and asked if she noticed any cars out front. Police said the neighbor didn’t hear anything the day of the burglary.
