Theft

200 block of Poplar Street: A guy ran out to his vehicle to get something in the middle of the afternoon, but forgot to lock up before going back inside, he told police. The next morning he discovered someone had stolen his 9 mm pistol that was inside the vehicle, along with its nylon case and an extra ammo magazine in a leather case.
