500 Guns Stolen from Cleveland TX Police Evidence Room

Chron.com reports that thieves removed some 500 deadly weapons from the Cleveland, Texas police evidence room. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) recovered just 112 of the missing firearms from a Humble gun shop (of which there are three). As you probably guessed, there’s a strong suspicion that some of The Lone Star State’s Boys in Blue done did it. Especially as Captain Harold Kelley of the Liberty County sheriff’s department had officially listed 98 of those weapons as destroyed. The same Captain Kelley who had one of the two keys to the evidence room where the guns were stored. Apparently, “The Texas Rangers, which had been looking into the missing weapons, found the sale of the weapons to a gun shop ‘suspicious and irregular,’ according to the court documents.” Ya think? Meanwhile, The Truth About Guns has learned that Captain Kelley is still at his post pending investigation.
