ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Three guns were among several items taken from an Annapolis house during a burglary Thursday morning, Annapolis police said.

The robbery occurred some time between 6 a.m. and 9:15 p.m. in the 700 block of Warren Drive, police said. The rear door of the house was forced open, gaining the suspect or suspects access. The three firearms, jewelry, four Timex watches, and a white, black, and blue Look triathlon bike were stolen, police said.

According to Maryland Public Safety Code 5-146, the owner of a regulated firearm must report the loss or theft of such a weapon to local law enforcement within 72 hours of the owner discovering the disappearance of the gun. Those local law enforcement agencies must then report the lost or stolen firearm to the Secretary and enter as much information about the weapon, including its caliber, make, model, manufacturer, serial number, and any other distinguishing number or identification mark, as possible into the National Crime Information Center database.

Willfully violating this rule results in a civil offense punishable by a fine of up to $500 for a first offense, and a misdemeanor charge possibly resulting in a 90-day prison term and a fine up to $500 for a second offense.
