Spoke with my grandfather this evening. He told me how sad he was to learn that a .22 pistol had had in his Florida home had been stolen sometime between March (when he left) and this weekend. The thieves knew what they were after and only took that, leaving no indication that they were even there until my mother had gone to the house to secure the gun (something my grandfather forgot to do). He has a good idea of who might have done it. While having a contractor do some work on his house, the man asked my grandfather if he needed any firearms and that he could get anything he wanted. My grandfather declined the shady offer by saying that he doesn't need one because he has one already. Yeah, I know... not a wise thing to say. There were no signs of forced entry, so they must have picked the front door lock. They came, got the gun, and left. As people have come and gone from the home since March, nobody was aware of the intrusion because the thieves didn't take anything that would have indicated a theft (i.e., a missing TV would have been a clue). My grandfather is going through the process of reporting the theft to police. Wanted to ask if there's anything else he can do that might result in him being able to get the gun back? Reporting the suspicious contractor is already on his to-do list. But anything else? The gun is more valuable from a sentimental perspective than anything else... he's had it for around 50 years... got it a few years after getting married. I'd really like to be able to help him get it back if possible. Any advice, tips, pointers, contacts, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
