Dear Mr. Tinker
On January 10th, 2018 we received your public records request for the following records:
I have a client that was charged with possession of a stolen firearm in Lordsburg, NM. I have attached the Criminal Complaint to aid in explaining my situation. As you can see in item #5 on page 2 of the complaint, it references the firearm by serial number and description and states that it was reported stolen by APD. I have not been able to find any report related to the alleged theft of this gun.
I was hoping that you could perform a search and then issue some kind of statement or document detailing your findings.
My client is adamant that he did not know that it was a stolen weapon when he purchased it over 3 years ago.
This communication will confirm our completion of your request. We have searched for responsive records and not been able to locate or identify any records. As a result, there are no responsive records related to your request that are maintained by my office. My office will now close your public records request.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
