Madison police said they are investigating three handgun thefts from vehicles on the West Side this month.

A Scranton Court resident reported a weapon missing Thursday after inadvertently leaving their pickup truck unlocked, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said in a statement.

A Sayner Court homeowner reported a similar crime Wednesday, and the weekend of May 9-10 a man on Stonebridge Drive said a Berretta 9mm was stolen from the glovebox after he left his car unlocked, DeSpain said.

DeSpain said police prefer people keep weapons in their locked homes.
