SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: GUN GONE MOVED AWAY
Stolen before 6 p.m. June 14: a 9 mm Beretta PX Storm semi-automatic pistol from the kitchen table of a backhouse in the backyard of a home in the 3700 block of Lexington Drive. Employees for a moving company potentially had access, the gun’s owner said.
Broken before 4:15 a.m.: side window of an Austin man’s 2004 Volkswagen Jetta at a home in the 4600 block of Abbott Avenue.
Taken before 5 p.m.: $1,300 in stereo equipment, including a speaker, Pioneer AV receiver, Pioneer tuner, and Pioneer 100-disc CD changer, from the entertainment room of a home 4300 block of Westway Avenue. Left behind in the dusty floor at the house, which is undergoing renovation: footprints from some kind of sandals.
