  •  Is there a chance this is an attempt at coverup? (5+ / 0-)

    The idea that there's no evidence of break-in - just this guy's story - immediately brings to my mind a potential thing for the police to watch out for.  Could this be an attempt to cover his tracks because he knows there's a good chance one of his guns could be tied to a crime so he staged a fake burglary to say it and several others had been stolen?  I'm not saying that did happen, just that because it could and would be consistent with the facts the police should consider this guy a suspect if one of these weapons does get discovered to have been used in a crime.

    Or another potential possibility more halfway between "used the gun on someone" and "did nothing wrong" could be that if he needed some cash and decided to sell a few of his guns without going through proper channels (i.e. pawn shop or sold on the street), he might stage a burglary of those guns just in case they get used in a crime.
