"Holstered" is the key word. But if you figure the steps:
Step 1: unbuckle the seat belt.
step 2: reach behind seat and get the holstered gun
step 3: unholster gun.

Even if seat belt was unbuckled, there were still 2 steps. In other words, the firearm was not readily accessible to the anyone.

You have the box? Is the original owners manual in the box? How about the original reciept? That would have the Serial # on it!!

Given that a motor vehicle stop was conducted which led to the discovery of the firearm, there WILL BE A RECORD somewhere. The days of stopping cars without calling in the stop in some manner are over. If the officer called it in via radio, there would most likely be a radio log of incident to include a plate number and location. If it was recorded with an MDT (mobile data terminal, fancy term for "computer in the car") there will also be a record.

Now that you've essentially accused a cop of stealing from you, and a firearm at that, you almost have the responsibility of reporting the incident and getting to the bottom of the initial problem. You may take the hit on the false report and your wife for the firearm violation (if it was a violation, I am not familiar with Florida law, just a worst case scenario), but a cop STEALING from citizens on traffic stops is damn serious. My opinion of course.

Can you say DASH CAM!!??? There IS a record of this incident somewhere; I would not let this go away.

#1, why do you think she would have been arrested?

#2, what dept was he with

#3, she should be able to ID him.


This story doesnt add up.

Wouldn't be the first time a wife has lied to a husband.

This was actually my first thought, I even asked her exactly that. Of course she said no and her story is way to detailed. I laughed when I read your comment though. Actually my wife loves guns, she was behind me 100% recently when I told her I wanted an AR15 and I got it. She still wants me to take pics of her with it.

This story doesnt add up.
Everyone is so observant and all, so I'll lay it out there.
#1 the wife just got put on probation recently for a disorderley conduct charge on St Patrick's day.
#2 She is 20 yrs old. under 21 no hand guns in florida.
#3 she is pissed it was there and feels like if I push the issue she goes to jail. There is no reasoning with her on this either.
Like I said before it is my fault for leaving it in the car, I am soley responsible for that weapon. I knew she could take off in the car whenever.
#4 I am not 100% certain it was Vero Beach who took it, thats what she said. I only called them and Ft Pierce. The only other one is Indian River Sherriff's office. I just felt deep down in this situation leaving it alone was the best thing to do.
Bottom line I told most of the story to lay out the scenario. The main reason I did is because I thought my right to buy more guns would be stripped away over this ordeal. So I signed up here to get some opinions. If I did push the issue, maybe myself AND the officer would get in trouble, and my wife.
One last thought I had recently: If this cop can turn his head to his duties (He should have arrested my wife), then why couldnt he have left my gun in my car and just gone away. That comes down to just respecting a fellow man's property. You know?
