Arrest in theft of Auburn officer's gun, badge, uniform

TACOMA -- A 34-year-old man has been arrested and charged in Tacoma in the theft of an Auburn police officer's gun, badge and uniform from his personal vehicle. However, the items are still missing.
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.
