Green Beret's Puyallup Home Vandalized, Guns Stolen

Puyallup Police are asking for citizen help to find the four people who broke into a Green Beret's downtown home and stole a cache of military-grade weapons.

While a local Green Beret was training overseas, his Puyallup home was broken into and many high-grade military weapons were stolen last month, according to Puyallup Police.

Stolen items included several firearms and military gear, including body armor, TVs, electronics, tools, credit cards, and even the washer and dryer, according to CanYouIDMe.com, a website dedicated to finding unknown theives in surveillance videos across Washington State. The website link was created by Puyallup Detective Mike Lusk.

The day of the burglary his credit cards are used at local businesses in Puyallup, Lusk describes.

One of the guns was recovered during a traffic stop in Spanaway, according to reports from The Tacoma News Tribune

Puyallup Police Capt. Scott Engle told the TNT that the stolen items are worth over $20,000.

Four individuals--two men and two women--can be seen in the surveillance videos and are wanted for questioning in this case.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Puyallup Police Department’s tip line at 253-770-3343.

Someone needs to try and explain to me why these weapons 1. we're in a private home and not with the soldier and 2. why they were not SECURED in a gun safe. This is a prime example of irresponsible weapon ownership that leads to horrific events and more cries for government intervention. This soldier holds as much responsibility as the criminals.

First, it is were not we're. Second, because he is allowed to own guns due to our 2nd Amendment. Third, maybe he did have a gun safe and they broke into it. So before you judge people, please get the whole story.
