A U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent reported a lost pistol Friday morning in San Francisco, police said.
At 9:27 a.m. a San Francisco police officer at the Ingleside District Station took a call from the agent who said he lost his pistol at 6 a.m.
In the past year, other law enforcement officers have lost or had their weapons stolen, with sometimes tragic results. The gun that killed Kate Steinle in San Francisco in July 2015 was stolen from a vehicle of a U.S. Bureau of Land Management ranger.
The University of California at Berkeley police chief had her gun, badge and official laptop stolen from her car on Aug. 21 at Point Isabel in Richmond.
A bill introduced in the state Senate last month would require everyone, including law enforcement officers, to store any handgun left in a vehicle in a locked trunk or a locked container out of sight.
