I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires. The City of San Antonio has reviewed its files and has located the enclosed documents that are responsive to your request. The stats for astolen firearm are calculated when the stolen firearm is entered as anoffense report. Our report management system may not tally the firearm as stolen when the gun is listedin a supplemental report. The TCIC entries for stolen guns tally all that areentered with an available serial number, to include those listed onsupplemental reports. However, TCIC will not include any tallies for gunsreported without an available serial number. Therefore, the stats provided may not be compared to what is entered in TCIC.
