Dear Records Officer,

Pursuant to Florida's Sunshine Law (Fla. Stat. secs. 119.01 to 119.15 (1995)), I hereby request the police reports, incident reports, crime reports, arrest reports, or any other material detailing the incidents under the following case numbers:

1) 2012-00028735
2) 2016-00015125

These are cases involving stolen guns that were recovered as part of a criminal investigation. We identified them through an analysis of data from your department as well as hundreds of other jurisdictions.

Please provide records that include at least the serial number, make, and other descriptive information of the firearm stolen or recovered; the date, time and location of the theft, offense, and/or recovery; a narrative description of the theft, offense, investigation and/or recovery of the firearm(s); the name, age, occupation, and other identifying and contact information for the victim(s), reporting person(s), and any defendant(s) charged; and the text of any charges filed.

I am a reporter with The Trace, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit news organization. I am filing this request through MuckRock’s public records request management service, which I use to better track and streamline 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.

I would prefer it if you emailed me the documents in a .pdf format. You can email them to me by replying to this message. If you have any trouble communicating with me at this email, you can also email me at my work email address: foia@thetrace.org

If for any reason the documents must be provided via standard mail, please send them to the following address:

In the event that there are fees, I would appreciate if you informed me of the total estimated charges before completing my request and sent me an invoice outlining the reasons for those charges.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, please cite the applicable statutory exemption.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,
Brian Freskos

Hello,

We are in receipt of your request which is quite extensive, as these are 2 Homicides reports. I estimate the cost to be at least $100.00 or more. There was a recent law passed in Florida that will require quite a bit of redaction, see attached. Please let me know if you still wish to proceed.

As noted, these are extensive cases, and I am not required to sift through and pull out the information you request, I can provide you with a copy of the report with the required redactions. And once again please do not email your requests to my personal email, all requests need to be sent to cocoarecords@cocoapolice.com<mailto:cocoarecords@cocoapolice.com>. Thank you.
