More than 2,000 guns stolen out of cars in the last 10 months
Houston police said thieves look for many clues to see if there are guns in your car, like stickers of gun brands or organizations.
Houston police said they are seeing a rise in the number of guns stolen from cars.
Sergeant Tracy Hicks from the HPD Auto Theft Crimes Task Force said more than 2,000 guns have been stolen from cars in the city in the last 10 months. He said that is an increase of 21 percent since last year.
"It's not a good guy stealing your gun. It's a bad guy using it for who knows what," said Sgt. Hicks. "What is my gun being used for now? That’s scary."
Michael McCain whacked a hornet's nest — and those who know him aren't surprised
McCain’s now famous tweet-thread spoke of a colleague who “lost his wife and family to a needless, irresponsible series of events of Iran…”, and it placed the blame for those events — the downing of Ukraine International Airlines flight 752 out of Tehran, and the deaths of 57 Canadians on board — squarely on the shoulders of a “narcissist in Washington.”

She has translated her love of cooking into a multi-million dollar enterprise. In 1963, Jean Paré launched a catering business and in 1981, published her first cookbook in the Company's Coming series. Today, over 21 million cookbooks have been sold worldwide with annual sales exceeding $18 million.
Combining her natural talent with sound business sense, she built an empire that now includes several spin-off ventures.
Her generosity of spirit extends to the broader community where her financial support of a number of organizations is as impressive as her culinary skills and is an equally important ingredient in her personal recipe for success.
How Jean Paré Taught Canada to Cook
Six years later, Gail Lovig still vividly remembers the sunny fall afternoon her mom taught her how to make pie crust. Lovig laid out the required tools and ingredients in her kitchen in Fanny Bay, British Columbia, while her mother—who happens to be Jean Paré, of Company’s Coming cookbook fame—was perched on a stool nearby, a glass of white wine in hand. When she was ready, Lovig looked over at her mother and said, “Okay, tell me what to do.”
