Default Guns stolen - please be on look out - Pleasanton, CA

Got the dreaded call this morning that my storage unit was broken into.
Bad guys ransacked everything. The 2 shtf rifles I kept there were stolen.
(Haven't fully inventoried what else were stolen)

Actually the bad guys hit 17 units there sometime between Sat evening and this (Monday) morning.

Please be on the look out for:

KelTec SU16A s/n NOU98
Henry AR7 s/n US075845B

Yes police was called and they're still onsite doing their thing.

Those storage facilities generally have good video surveillance. Cops should be able to get some good leads.

Sorry to hear that OP. I had a gun stolen a few years back and thankfully it was recovered. Took almost 2 years to get back because it was held as evidence.

Hopefully they are recovered soon without any issues. Had to complete a LEGR form to get the gun back. (Fee's are waived if its stolen).

These are inexpensive and replaceable guns so I don't really care if I get them back or not. I actually had both for years and never shot them. I care about indirectly causing somebody harm or adding to the case for the antis. Well, also the feeling of getting violated.

Yes the facility has surveillance. I don't know if what they have is good enough.
I'm happy the police appears to be serious about this.

I had a storage unit broken into. They used bolt cutters to cut the lock. They did not get anything of value, but I still felt violated. The guys from the SO were very helpful and managed to get some prints and some footprints. Never heard if the caught the bad guys, though.

I feel your pain, and hope you get your weapons back.

Sorry to hear it. Hope they catch the low-lifes.
I have half my gun collection in a storage unit, but they're in a gun safe and the facility has 24 hour armed security.
Nothing is 100% secure, but you do what you can...

Sorry to hear that lazyworm. I shop around the Bay Area pretty often and sometimes shop on Armslist (although I've yet to make a successful transaction through there) and I'll definitely keep an eye out.

Which makes one wonder: If the gun is serialized to you, and bad guy steals and sells it ppt, does the gun get flagged during DROS? I had a gun stolen from me (long story, involving probate), and always wondered if it would ever show up on the market again? Am I still the owner?

Sorry for the hi jack

Generally if a report is taken, the stolen gun with serial numbers (manufacturer or self inscribed identifiers) is entered into AFS as stolen. They are flagged. During DROS or if a LEO requests an AFS check, they will be notified of the disposition of the firearm; ie. reported stolen, lost, safe keeping, ect.

Almost 8 years ago one of my contractors broke into my handgun safe and 10 guns were stolen. Fast forward I have only two that still missing. One just 3 months ago recovered in Banning Ca. My point is they are more likely to be recovered then decades ago. Turn in a police report, gun description, make, model, serial# and its going into the data bank..

If these are SHTF rifles and you've never shot them, how do you know they are sighted in? During a societal collapse you plan on heading over to your storage unit instead of sheltering in place?

I'm confused by your strategy.

Most of the time it's an inside job as the people working at storage units are the types ok staying up all night making minimum wage.

Exactly. That's how I was robbed. Most of my stuff is gone forever. I think many storage operators are one step up the scumbag scale from tow truck operators. Which is to say well below something you never want to get on your shoe.

Get your list of serial numbers to the cops asap, and make sure they send it in to the national NCIC database.

Sorry to hear that OP. I was doing a garage remodel a couple of years ago and put a lot of very expensive stuff into a 10x10x20 storage unit for about 4 months. I also put a simpli safe alarm in there, basically one motion detector and an entry sensor on the rollup door, got the onsite managers personal cell number as well. He said he had never seen anyone alarm a storage unit before, thought it was pretty cool.

It's rampant. Never put anything into storage you would really miss, even if it has no monetary value. Thieves sometimes back up a truck and throw everything into it and sort out what's valuable later. Old couches, cardboard boxes, etc are okay to keep in the unit, but anything of value, not. Even if they have "armed security" as mentioned above, your stuff is not safe. These places usually pay minwage, and the thefts are inside jobs. Visit your unit at least once a month, it could have been robbed and you not even know it. The thieves look for spider webs, etc on locks and target those units first.

Yes, I'm bitter about being robbed.

Trying to kind of make a joke out of this one but you never hear people breaking in the stuff in the Calabasas might want to choose a better place to store your stuff then in the ghetto

This is why I was asking a few months back about a camera setup I could put in my storage unit that would send me an alert if it caught any movement.
I am all moved in to my new place and just closed out my storage unit, The gate at the facility always had issues and would often not close after someone went in and stay open all night with no on site management.
Anyone could have pulled right in with a truck and bolt cutter and had a field day.


If you do a search online on the subject, you will find Storage unit break-ins are way too common.

Good luck, Public storage had cameras that had foggy footage, lackadaisical security and their insurance only approved a $200 payout on almost $3500 of property stolen from our storage unit.

Same type of robbery, multiple units hit in one night.

One of the good things about registration and nics is if the guns do get sold legit. They should be flaged and busted.

Public Storage in SoCal has issues. Evidently how they originally build each units are flawed. The top ceiling of each unit is only secured by chicken wire or some sorts. Bad guys would rent an unit. Gain access gate/entry codes. Wait for no one is around (late at night), use a ladder to climb from their rented unit to climb to others, cut thru chicken wire, and ransack other units.
