One item in a recent West Whiteland Police blotter detailed an ineffective way to hide a shotgun, namely under a pile of clothes in an unlocked truck:
A Remington shotgun was stolen from an unlocked pickup truck in the 1000 block over Cedarwood Avenue overnight Tuesday 12/4 – Wednesday 12/5/12. The owner left the gun on the seat under some clothing and found it missing in the morning. He drove the truck from the scene and reported the theft by phone later on. The neighborhood was canvassed but no leads have been developed.
