“It’s one too many if it ends up being used in the commission of a crime,” Frisco Police Sgt. Evan Mattei said.
Data shows that the majority of firearm thefts are occurring in residential neighborhoods and specifically from unlocked vehicles parked in those neighborhoods.
“We're a safe, safe city, but we are not immune from crime,” Mattei said. “The overwhelming majority [of firearm thefts] are absolutely preventable by the citizen themselves if they would remove the firearm from their car ... and lock the car.”
