    Sheriff's office missing 48 guns

    CORPUS CHRISTI - Forty-eight firearms are missing from the Nueces County Sheriff's Department, according to an internal investigation.

    Sheriff Jim Kaelin said an audit report presented to him when he took office in November prompted the investigation. It found more guns to be unaccounted for than initially thought.

    He said the serial numbers of the missing guns, which include shotguns, rifles and handguns, have been reported to a national law enforcement database and classified as stolen.

    The department is developing a new inventory system for the 300 guns in its armory, Kaelin said. The system will require each new gun to be carefully cataloged with a record of the officer carrying it.

    "Before, the list was fragmented, it was pieced together and a real aberration of what a good accounting for an armory should have been like," Kaelin said. "I was shocked to know they kept a system like they had."

    Kaelin said at least 58 guns were missing at one time. The department has repeatedly asked officers to report missing guns. Several weapons have been recovered in places such as patrol car trunks. One gun was found in a suitcase at the bottom of a closet in the department's administration building.
