Pittsburgh Police have recently witnessed a concerning trend in the number of firearms being stolen from vehicles.
Over the past month and a half, there have been nearly a dozen legally-owned guns taken from vehicles in the City, some of which had been left unlocked.
Police want to remind gun owners of the following:
Don't make it easy for thieves. The last thing a lawful owner wants to hear is that their stolen gun was used in a shooting, especially if the theft could have been easily avoided by responsibly storing the firearm.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
For questions about the lighting at the City-County Building, please reach out to the Office of the Mayor.
