Guns Stolen During Two Separate Home Invasions

HOLLAND, Mich. – Holland police are investigating two separate home invasions where guns were stolen.

On Thursday, Jan 10, homeowners in the 900 block of Columbia discovered someone had broken into their home. They reported that their flat screen television, money and a .357 revolver handgun were missing.

Police believe the suspect(s) entered the home through an unlocked door.

Later that same evening, homeowners in the 200 block of E 35th, reported that someone had broken into their home by forced entry through a locked door. They reported that the suspect(s) stole three semiautomatic handguns. The guns stolen were a .380, .45 and a 9mm.

Police said that because the burglaries are in close proximity to each other, with handguns being stolen from both homes, it’s likely they’re related.

Both burglaries are also believed to have happened between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Holland Department of Public Safety at 616-355-1100.

    if the owners of these guns that were easily taken have any preteen or teen children, they should check with them first. most teen girls in nice areas usually let their thug wannabe boyfriends steal from their parents…

      The owners of the guns should be in Ottawa county jail right now…………. Its reckless to have guns laying around a house unsecured. People like this are part of the problem and definitely not the solution

          should have had them secured were they could not be stolen, and i agree with anonymous. if you own a gun should make sure they are useless if stolen, now an unknown person has those guns, wonder how many people they will kill..that is the problem dickhead dann

    I bet this will be linked to legal registration and the freedom of information act all over the news. Just think if the burglars have this information and how easy it is to steal these weapons, how easy it will be for the government to come take them.Scary!

      own a gun fine, but if you can't keep it out of the hands of criminals then you don't deserve to own one, wonder how many people have been killed by guns that were stolen from whiny little gun lovers who are too stupid to keep them secure

    To write this you don’t deserve to own a gun!!!!!!!!!!! Its people like you that are going to get the government up the arse of responsible gun owners like myself. Notice the key word “responsible” if you are literate enough to understand. Go take a gun class you tool and quit making the serious owners look bad……

      guess what i own several guns i am also trained by the usmc to use any gun to stop any threat forgein or domestic. i am trying to think of the last time i saw a gun get up and walk out the door and go kill people. and anonymous if you are a free us citizen you can thank all my brothers in the armed forces that have given thier lives so cowards like yourself can claim to be a gun owner and hide behind a computer screen acting like your someone special, but guess what i will still be running toward any enemy who comes at this great land that i love and protect not only for my own family but for you and yours also.
