Police investigating theft of guns, tools from unlocked pickup


Police say they're investigating the theft of two guns, a wallet and tools from an unlocked pickup overnight Monday near 56th Street and Pioneers Boulevard.

Officer Erin Spilker said a 46-year-old Lincoln man reported the theft Tuesday morning after discovering the items had been taken from his 2019 Ford F-150 truck parked in his driveway on LaSalle Street.

She said a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifle with a diamondback scope and an M&P 9c 9mm pistol were taken. The pistol was in a Hornady gun safe in the back seat of the truck's cab. The loss was estimated at $2,200.
