Chatham County Police Department Asking Residents to Provide Firearm Serial Numbers

( - WTGS reports that numerous guns are stolen in the county, 90 have been stolen since February 2018 alone.

CCPD Capt. Daniel Flood said, “Unfortunately, we’ve seen a big increase in the number of guns that have been stolen from unlocked cars. From burglaries and that type of thing.” He added, “About a third of them don’t have serial numbers. [The gun owners] don’t record the serial numbers.”

Flood is asking county residents to provide their serial numbers via a database so that if their guns are stolen police will have the information. He says that will enable police to find the gun if it is taken to a pawn shop in another county or state too.
