An unmarked Orange County Sheriff's Office patrol car was stolen from the Fun Spot parking lot and now a trove of state-issued firearms are missing.

According to WESH, the car, which was reported stolen at 9:30 p.m. last Saturday, was eventually found on International Drive. However, two pistols, a submachine gun, ammunition, a tactical vest and a Sheriff's star are still missing.

This isn't the first time this year a Central Florida patrol car and its contents have been jacked. Back in January, an Orlando SWAT officer's unmarked police car was stolen from an apartment complex in Baldwin Park, along with a UMP .45-caliber submachine gun, four loaded magazines, a helmet and two magazines for a handgun.  

A few weeks later, a Tavares police officer woke up to find the windows of his marked squad car smashed in and a short-barreled AR rifle missing.

Then, in February, an AR-15 was stolen from a Orlando Police Department patrol vehicle, along with the entire gun mount locking device (which was also secured), at the Lake Nona Water Mark Apartments.
