MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) - A southwest Idaho police department says three handguns, a rifle and a shotgun have been stolen from unlocked vehicles in the last week.

The Meridian Police Department in a statement Friday says it has taken more than 20 vehicle burglary reports in that span and all came from residents who didn’t lock their vehicles.

The agency says the theft of firearms poses a potential threat to the public and police officers.

The agency says residents should lock their vehicles and not leave firearms in them.
