Second Home Identified on Journal News Gun Map Is Burglarized – Vandals Steal Gun Safe
A second home identified by the Journal News as possessing guns was burglarized on Wednesday night. The thieves stole a gun safe on the third floor of the home.
Two handguns and two pistol permits were stolen from the New City home of a man whose name and address are listed on the website of a local newspaper as possessing gun permits, police said.
The thieves ransacked the house Wednesday night, breaking into two safes on the home’s third floor and stealing a third safe. The guns were in the stolen safe, police said.
Clarkstown police said they had no evidence the burglary was connected to the controversial map.
“The burglary is still under investigation and there are no facts to support this correlation at this time,” Clarkstown Sgt. Joanne Fratianni said in a statement. “If the investigation develops further information, it will be released accordingly.”
Family members at the burglarized home refused to speak Thursday and police are keeping reporters off the property on the quiet suburban street.
