Did Pasco Gun Thieves Know Owner Had Just Died from COVID?
Police are not saying, but one of the questions that has to be asked about this theft is, did the perps know the man had recently passed away?
Pasco Police have been alerted to the theft of a significant amount of firearms from a home recently. The thefts occurred in the 6000 block of Candlestick Drive, sometime during late night or early morning hours August 26th.
Police were alerted after relatives of the homeowner saw these suspects breaking and entering and loitering around the home and its storage areas. Police say the man who lived there very recently died from COVID.
His family and relatives called authorities after seeing the two suspects on the video security feed. Apparently, they broke in and stole six pistols, a shotgun and a rifle. The calibers of the weapons were not released by Police.
It is not known if anyone had begun to take stock of the man's belongings, or if the property had been secured following his death. There's a lot of unanswered questions, including the one we posed earlier.
Did they know he'd died or was this just a very unfortunate coincidence? Either way, anyone who may have information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential. You can be sure pawn shops have been alerted as to the make and models of the guns in case the perps try to sell them.
