FLAGSTAFF — The Coconino County sheriff is among the victims of a recent string of auto burglaries in Flagstaff.

Police spokesman Sgt. James Jackson says thieves have made off with cellphones, laptops, GPS units, cash — and Sheriff Bill Pribil's personal 9mm semi-automatic handgun.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that Pribil placed the gun in the center console of his truck when helping a friend move on Saturday. He says he remembers locking his truck when he parked at home but later discovered his firearm missing.

Pribil says he'll now be sure to remove valuables from his vehicle.

Late Wednesday, Jackson confirmed that two teens have been arrested in connection with recent burglaries in Flagstaff. He says one teen was caught by police and the other turned himself.
