Police: don't leave gun in car when in downtown Detroit

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (AP) -

Police are warning people to leave guns at home instead of in vehicles parked in downtown Detroit when they attend events such as Tigers games.  

The Detroit News reports the renewed warning comes amid worries by police that guns will be stolen. Police Sgt. Michael Woody says officials don't have an exact number of downtown gun thefts, but said the issue has "popped up on our radar."  

Last year, police said guns left in vehicles in downtown Detroit in part because weapons aren't allowed in nightclubs, the stadium for the Detroit Lions and other venues were being targeted by thieves.

Tighter security at Tigers games prompted the fresh warning.   This season, Tigers fans pass through metal detectors while entering Comerica Park, part of the new set of security measures.
