WICHITA, Kan. -

Each day, we comb through pages upon pages of crime reports from the Wichita Police Department.  Below is a quick glance at some bits and pieces from those sheets. 

These reports are designed to give you an idea of what residents and police are dealing with around town.

A 39/m who works for Motor City Sports says a 2005 Ford Mustang convertible was stolen from the 1200 block of S. Broadway. It’s red with a black pinstripe. He says the vehicle doesn’t have a tag. Surveillance video shows a thief cutting the lock on a gate, then starting up the car and driving it to a white International flatbed tow truck, which was waiting in the alley along with another person. He says the key was lost a few weeks ago and a replacement key had been made.

Lost handguns…
12:48 pm
A 36/m says he lost some of his handguns. He lives in the 9400 block of E. Bent Tree and says he doesn’t get a lot of company. When he does have visitors, it’s usually family. He didn’t have the serial numbers from the guns. He found out they were missing when he got out the gun cases and they were empty. He says there’s no sign of forced entry to his house. He also says he may have put the guns into another gun case, but he doesn’t remember doing that.

He has insurance on the phone, but needed a police report to file a claim.
