Police Equipment in the Wrong Hands
There are some "tools of the trade" that don't need to fall into the wrong hands. But at least seven times burglars have targeted police vehicles from three agencies in North Central Florida.
Since November 18th, cars belonging to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, Gainesville Police Department and the University of Florida Police Department have been broken into.
A stolen gun from a UPD burglary was recovered Sunday after a traffic stop. 17 year old Buddy Fleming and 19 year old Isaiah Kellum, both of High Springs, were arrested after a glock, marijuana and cocaine were found.
Investigators aren't sure how the teens are involved in the burglaries, but they hope this arrest will lead them to the other stolen equipment.
