BARTLETT, Tenn. -- Someone broke into a Memphis police sergeant's personal car over the weekend and stole a service weapon.

WREG has covered at least four other instances of MPD officers' guns being stolen since June of last year.

In most of those cases, it was MPD service weapons that were stolen.

A Bartlett Police report said between 1 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday, someone broke into Sergeant Kevin Lundy's work vehicle. The black Dodge Charger was parked in Lundy's driveway in Bartlett.

Lundy is a sergeant that appeared on "The First 48," a show that followed Memphis homicide investigations.

The thief (or thieves) stole his police-issued Sig-Sauer P229 and a Ruger 9MM Luger. It's unclear if the second gun is a service weapon.

Lundy said he always keeps his work vehicle locked.

Someone also stole a pair of $300 headphones from a personal car in the driveway.

Police do not have suspect descriptions.

MPD said it would respond Wednesday to WREG's request for information about protocol for storing service weapons.

WREG spoke with Lundy over the phone. He said he couldn't comment on the situation.
