A Glock 9 mm handgun stolen from an off-duty security officer Monday night was recovered by police on the 4400 block of North Cornelia Avenue, Fresno police said.
Sgt. John Romo said officers went to the location about 9 p.m. and learned the security officer left the gun and other items in her security vehicle for only a few minutes when someone smashed a window and stole them.
The officers learned the juvenile suspect lived in the area and a short time later took him into custody after he was seen by the victim, chased and convinced to surrender by his mother.
The gun was found later by Officer Jonathan Linzey.
The suspect was booked into the Fresno County Juvenile Justice Center on burglary charges.
