Trenton police responded to a call about a stolen assault rifle at about 4:15 p.m. Jan. 3 in the 2000 block of Marian Drive.
A 50-year-old Trenton man told police his Armalite .40 caliber assault rifle and two magazines were stolen while he was at a doctor's appointment between 3 and 3:45 p.m.
The man said there was no forced entry and his residence was secure when he returned from the appointment. He told police he "believes it was an inside job by someone who has a key to his residence and knowledge of his daily routines," according to a Trenton police report.
Police requested a serial number for the weapon, but the man was unable to produce one at the time the incident was reported. The man told police he would contact them later when he retrieved the documentation from his sister's house where he stores most of his guns.
