Sgt. Michael Andraychak sent out a quick e-mail letting the public now that all is well: "As the theft of this rifle was a concern to public safety, Chief Suhr wanted the recovery of this weapon to be announced immediately."
On Saturday, police parked and secured their vehicle while working in SOMA when someone broke into the car and snatched one of the Police Department's AR-15 rifles.
Police issued a teletype for the missing firearm, which is used to train cops to handle high-risk incidents. Police said they didn't spare any resources looking for the gun, but they didn't elaborate on how they came across the weapon or whether anyone was arrested.
Now let's just hope the cops won't have to put that gun to use any time soon.
