A man told police that two of his guns - one of them handed down to him by his grandfather - were stolen from his vehicle when he left it unlocked in a hotel garage Sunday.
Myrtle Beach police were called to the parking deck at Captain’s Quarters around 5 p.m. where a man told him someone had broken into his Ford Edge sport utility vehicle, according to an incident report.
The man said he came to his SUV to head out to dinner and “realized that his papers were scattered in the vehicle” and his two handguns in the glovebox were gone.
One of the firearms was a black 1911 .45 caliber and the other was a revolver that was given to him by his grandfather, according to the report.
Police said there were no signs of forced entry or any signs of damage to the vehicle and no other items were missing.
People are encouraged to hide valuable items and lock car doors to avoid vehicle break-ins. The incident remains under investigation.
