Arrest in theft of Auburn officer's gun, badge, uniform
A thief broke a window in the off-duty officer's pickup truck Wednesday night while it was parked in downtown Tacoma and grabbed a gym bag containing the items.
Auburn police have policies against leaving service weapons in private vehicles, but Cmdr. Mike Hirman said that rule doesn't apply because the stolen gun was a personal firearm. He notes the vehicle was locked and the bag was not in view, so the officer did not break any department policies.
