Dear Records Officer,

Pursuant to the Georgia Open Records Act, I hereby request the police reports, incident reports, crime reports, arrest reports, or any other material detailing the incident under the following case number:

12-06-1716

This case relates to the theft of a Glock firearm bearing serial number GBH952 on or about 6/25/2012.

I am a reporter with The Trace, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit news organization. I am making this request through MuckRock’s public records request management service, which I use to organize and streamline my public records requests. As a member of the news media, I will be making information obtained from this request available to the general public; I am not requesting it for commercial purposes.

Specifically, I am writing a story about the recovery of stolen firearms. Our records show that this Glock firearm was stolen in Athens, Georgia, and recovered in Chicago, Illinois. I am requesting this material to ascertain the circumstances under which the Glock was stolen.

I would prefer it if you emailed me the documents in a .pdf format. If for any reason the documents must be provided via standard mail, please send them to the following address:
