If you have to leave your gun, secure it in a way that won't allow for an easy grab! BUT, in my opinion... one should NEVER leave a weapon in a vehicle overnight!!

PINELLAS COUNTY, FL -- St.Petersburg Police have arrested 3 suspects for stealing weapons, including 2 from radio personality Bubba the Love Sponges' car.

The same suspects committed four vehicle burglaries in the parking lot of Sunrise Lanes Bowling Alley a short time later. One of those vehicles belonged to Bubba the Love Sponge Clem. The suspects stole several items from Clem's Chevrolet Suburban, including two handguns.

Detectives from the Department's CASE unit found the suspects' vehicle in the area and followed it. They arrested three of the four suspects who were inside of the vehicle. One of the suspects had to be restrained with the use of a Taser.

The fourth suspect escaped on foot, but was later identified. Detectives have issued probable cause for his arrest.
