NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Police Department needs help finding two guns that were stolen from an officer’s home while he was on vacation.

Investigators say the officer’s home in the Fourth District was burglarized sometime between July 22 and July 25. The officer had been out of town, and when he returned home, he found that his department-issued Glock Model 22 .40-caliber pistol and X26P Taser had been stolen. The thief also took two fully-charged magazines for the firearm and cartridges for the Taser.

The serial number for the stolen Glock is: NO-0841-PD. The serial number for the Taser is: X13000KFX. The Taser camera serial number is: V21000A3N. The Taser cartridges serial numbers are: C4101E9WA and C4101EA1E.

The NOPD said the thefts could pose a safety issue for the public and law enforcement personnel.

Anyone with information about the burglary or who knows where the stolen items may be should call the Fourth District Property Crimes Unit at (504) 658-6040.
