The Pasco County Sheriff's Office has shared surveillance video of a person stealing a handgun out of a parked truck owned by a Fish and Wildlife officer in New Port Richey. 

According to deputies, the officer had his personal green Ford Ranger parked in his driveway next to his fully marked agency vehicle. Deputies say the Ford Ranger was left unlocked. 

The suspect opened the door and stole the officer's Walther PPK .380 handgun, which was not a duty weapon, from the center console of the truck. 

Pasco Sheriff's Office asks that you call 1-800-706-2488 if you have any information on this burglary.
