Authorities recover gun stolen from FBI agent’s car in SF

Law enforcement officials on Tuesday recovered a gun that was stolen from an FBI agent’s car in San Francisco last weekend.

The break-in occurred within a 10-minute window early Sunday afternoon while the agent’s car was parked at Hayes and Pierce streets, San Francisco police spokesperson Officer Carlos Manfredi said. A .40-caliber Glock 27 was stolen along with an identification badge and credentials.

Authorities obtained surveillance footage near where the weapon was taken Sunday, and an FBI SWAT team executed a federal search warrant at a home near Keith and Thomas streets at about 11 a.m. Tuesday based on information obtained from the surveillance footage.

One suspect was taken into custody at the home in connection with the stolen weapon, and the gun was recovered. The agent’s credentials and badge remain missing.
