SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe police say a handgun that figures in a pending criminal case involving a felon was stolen from a police officer’s patrol car when it was parked at his home in 2012.

The Santa Fe New Mexican (https://goo.gl/Xexf9y ) reports that the Police Department on Wednesday released a report on the Glock semi-automatic handgun.

It was found when federal agents searched a truck in which 29-year-old Phillip Lovato was a passenger last November.

Lovato was later arrested and accused in a criminal complaint of drug and weapons crimes. He’s now jailed while awaiting trial.

The police report says Lt. William Norris in 2012 discovered a broken window in his vehicle and found that his gun was missing.
