HAYWAYRD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a Hayward police officer’s gun was stolen during a car burglary in Oakland, marking at least the third such theft in the Bay Area in recent months.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1MVYQ2Y) the latest incident happened Wednesday when an officer’s duty weapon was stolen from a car parked at the Fruitvale Station shopping center.

Officers were told to be on the lookout for a .40-caliber SIG Sauer P226, four magazines, an iPad and other items, including Hayward police identification.

On Friday, a loaded handgun, badge and ammunition belonging to UC Berkeley Police Chief Margo Bennett were stolen from her unmarked Ford Escape in Richmond.

A gun belonging to a federal Bureau of Land Management agent was stolen in June from a car parked in downtown San Francisco.
