Thank you so much Shannel. One question: Data that your department previously provided me indicated that the firearm stolen during this robbery was a Sig Sauer P226 bearing serial number UU659009. Can you confirm that information?

Yes, the information regarding the firearm that you were given for case 12-05321 is correct.
