In addition to the stolen Glock 45 9mm, officers seized a large number and variety of illegal drugs.
The second handgun, a Smith and Wesson 9mm, was recovered when Wright County, Minn. officers stopped a man from Latta, S.C.

The thief in the Country Boys break-in smashed his way through a front glass door and filled a child’s book bag with handguns in September.
