Thieves steal guns, permits and cash from New City home

imageA New City homeowner was allegedly robbed of guns, cash, pistol permits and a gun safe last night.

Clarkstown police say they responded to a call on Britta Lane around 10:00 p.m. yesterday and found the house ransacked. They say two safes located on the upper level of the home were found to be pried open. A third safe located in the basement was missing.

In total, two handguns, a .45 caliber Colt and .22 caliber Iver Johnson, were stolen along with an undetermined amount of cash, U.S. Savings Bonds, jewelry and a Rockland and Orange County pistol permits.

Police say there is no indication at this time that the crime was connected at all to the gun map that was published by The Journal News.
