LYON TWP. (WWJ) – The search is on for whoever broke into a police officer’s Lyon Township home and stole several guns and ammunition.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department said officers responded to a report of breaking and entering at a home on Richfield Street near South Lyon just before 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Investigators say the homeowner, who is a police officer from Northville, came home to find someone had broken into his home through a back window.

Upon surveying his belongings, the victim noticed several of his guns were missing, including two AR-15 rifles, a shotgun, a .22 cal. long gun and a .38 cal. hand gun. Along with the firearms, investigators say six loaded 30 round clips belonging to the AR-15 rifles were also taken.
