JPD spokeswoman Colendula Green said today that the gun and other personal items were stolen from Hood’s vehicle on May 26 on the parking lot of Stein Mart on I-55 North.
Hood wouldn’t comment today beyond confirming that the gun was stolen along with some personal property after his personal vehicle was broken into at Stein Mart in broad daylight.
“A report was filed with JPD. He is grateful the gun has been recovered,” spokeswoman Jan Schaefer said.
The elderly man, George Harris, said he purchased the gun Sunday from an unknown person on the parking lot of the Trade Mart building where a gun show was taking place.
