According to a police officer who spoke anonymously, last week Saturday, April 18th 2015 while on his working shift during 1:00-7:00a.m, 2 guns went missing from the Quick Response Team’s locker in the PG Police Station. Both of these stolen guns were fully loaded revolvers: a .38 caliber and a .32 caliber.
The public has not been made aware of this situation and the officer believes the department is covering up the theft, as the officer on duty at that time has not even been questioned.
The officer went on to say that he believes that these two guns might have been used in the Wednesday night murder of PG resident Frank Castro.
The pieces of the puzzle appear to match up since there are only a small number of guns on the streets in Punta Gorda. The next question residents in PG are asking is, “why is it that the murder of Castro happened only a few days after the guns went missing?”
“You can make your own assumptions about this matter but something definitely seems fishy,” says the whistle blower police officer.
Whether it’s a fact or not, why is it that the Police Department in Punta Gorda hasn’t informed the public of these missing firearms?
