Found gun turned over to police, two more reported stolen

One gun was recovered before two guns were reported stolen this weekend.

Galesburg police officers were called out to the 300-block of East Losey Street Sunday at about 9:46 in the morning for a handgun that was found in the front yard of a residence.

Police reports indicate that the yard was about to be mowed when the firearm was found. The handgun was described as being a chrome Cobra FS380 that was loaded with a round in the chamber and had a broken hand grip.

Indication is that based on the gun’s serial number, it had not been reported stolen.

Less than two hours later officers were called out to the 500-block of Peck Street where two guns were reported stolen from a gun cabinet.

According to police reports a 22-caliber revolver and a 16-gauge, bolt-action shotgun with a box magazine were taken.

The revolver was described as being blue with black grips, while the shotgun was a lighter colored wood.

The victim told officers she was in the process of moving over the last week and when she arrived to the house she found the guns missing.
