A Buford man awoke March 15 to discover his 2014 Toyota Tundra was no longer where he had parked it the previous evening.
The man told police he returned to his Harvest Ridge Circle home at approximately 11 p.m. on March 14 and parked in his driveway. The man admitted leaving the vehicle unlocked with the keys inside -- along with a loaded handgun.
The man said he had not given anyone permission to use the truck and indicated it had not been repossessed as he was current on the payments.
The red, four-door truck, as well as the Ruger LC9 pistol with a laser sight, were entered in the state database as stolen.
The case is listed as active.
