Guns Stolen from Home of Tulsa Police Officer

TULSA, Oklahoma -- The home of Tulsa police Sgt. Mike Huff has been burglarized with guns, badges and a police uniform among the items stolen.

Tulsa County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating the burglary. Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy George Haralson said public safety is a concern any time police equipment or weapons are stolen.

"The stolen police equipment, police IDs and weapons makes this a situation that needs to be addressed quickly," he said.

Huff was speaking at a conference of cold-case investigators in Florida when the burglary occurred Wednesday at his home near 66th Street North and 129th East Avenue.

Also stolen were televisions and a check book and family heirlooms.

"I had this wooden box with my dad's dog tags and World War II artifacts medals and ribbons," Huff said. "They mean nothing to nobody but everything to me."

The thief stole jewelry that Huff's mother had given his daughter, two sets of antique silver that had been in his family for three or four generations, and guns, most of which were given to Huff by his father. He said he had planned to give them to his son someday.

One of the guns from his father was a mint condition M1 carbine, he said.

The thieves also stole a blue Tulsa police uniform, a gun belt and badges.

"There is nothing good that can come from that," Huff said. "It was obvious from the things that they took that they knew I was police officer."

They stole a pickup that Huff had bought just last week a "fire engine red" 2003 Chevrolet S-10 with four-wheel drive, four-doors and a bed cover.

Sheriff's Capt. John Bowman said deputies don't have any suspect information to release.

No other burglaries have been reported in the immediate area recently, Bowman said.
