Two Handguns Stolen in New City Home Burglary

Britta Lane home burglarized on Wednesday and two handguns, pistol permits, cash, jewelry taken.

A home on Britta Lane in New City was burglarized on Wednesday, Clarkstown Police said.

Two handguns, a .45 cailber Colt and .22 caliber Iver Johnson, were stolen along with Rockland and Orange County pistol permits. Police report two safes on the upper level of the home were pried open and a third safe was missing from the basement.

An undetermined amount of cash, jewelry and U.S. Savings Bonds were also taken. The homeowner reported the burglary to police at about 9:45 p.m. Sgt. Jo Anne Fratianni said she did not know if the home had been included in an online map of Rockland County licensed pistol permit holders.

In a followup statement, police note the burglary is still under investigation and there are no facts to support a correlation between it and the published map.

Earlier this week, a burglar attempted to pry open a gun locker inside a White Plains home listed on the controversial gun permit map, police said.

The Clarkstown Police Department Detective Bureau is investigating and asks anyone with information to contact the Clarkstown Police Department at 845-639-5800 or the TIPS line at 877-639-6233.

Tell you what, if a crime is done with the use of these guns because the criminals used the map, the trash journal news might as well just shut down. They should be sued for assistance in a crime.
