Gunner: A Toronto man told deputies Monday his Ruger pistol had been stolen sometime in the past month, and the only person who had access was his daughter’s friend. He valued the pistol at $400. He said his daughter told him her friend had admitted taking it but said it’s “gone now.” She told deputies he said he was sorry, but he took it to “threaten a guy who gives his mom free meth because he threatened to kill him.” He said his step-father took it.

Tooled: The owner of an apartment in the 1200 block of Jefferson Street told police someone is stripping wiring and pipes from the residence and even smashing televisions in the property, Monday. Police said the wires were cut from the main breaker and wiring stripped from the basement and walls. The previous tenant’s sister had discovered piping missing from an upstairs sink and had called police earlier in the week, but a friend of her brother had told them there was a leak and he was going to fix it. The landlord said when she notified him about the missing bathroom pipe, he came to inspect the property and discovered criminal tools inside as well as copper wire, other plumbing and central air conditioner were missing.
Battling exes: A South Fifth Street resident told police her ex wouldn’t let her into his residence to gather her belongings, Monday. Police said he did bring her clothes to her car for her, but she complained that he still had her personal item, its charger and a Victoria Secret bag that belonged to her. Officers explained they couldn’t force him to let her into the residence, and the missing property was a civil matter.
