Brian Freskos filed this request with the Gilbert Police Department of Gilbert, AZ.


From: Ben Hallman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the state open records law, Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. Secs. 39-121 to 39-122 and 39-128, I hereby request the following records:

1) The total number of firearms reported stolen to your department in 2015.

2) The total number of firearms reported stolen from motor vehicles to your department in 2015.

I submitted on July 21 and 22 requests for police reports related to the theft of firearms from motor vehicles and asking for the total number of automobile burglaries in 2015. If you have not already completed that request, please complete this one first if possible.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

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

Thank you so much! I had another request pending seeking the total number of firearms stolen from sources (residences, businesses, cars, shops, etc.) in 2015. Would you mind providing me that number as well? That's the last thing I need.

From: Police Record Request

The total number of firearms stolen in 2015 was attached to email in the pdf file. It is the very last page. Please let me know if you did not receive it in the email.
