Florida Man Has Loaded Gun Stolen From His Car, Only to Have It Returned With a Disturbing Message

A Florida man says he will no longer carry a loaded gun in his car after a disturbing incident at his Port St. Lucie home. Someone apparently wanted to teach him a lesson in gun safety.

Mike Maisonnueve told local police that his gun, bullets and a knife were stolen from his unlocked vehicle parked in his driveway, WPBF reports. After realizing his car had been broken into, he started making his way back into his house when he noticed a bag next to the front door, with words scribbled on either side.

ne message read: “LOADED GUN unlocked car = STUPID!!”

On the other side: “LOTS of children in the area.”

Inside the bag were Maisonneuve’s gun and knife, but missing were the bullets.

”I learned a lesson, a valid lesson” Maisonneuve told WBPF. “I should not carry a loaded firearm in my car.”

“My mind’s been other places the last week or so. I thought I locked my car. Apparently I didn’t,” he added.

While the person who pulled the stunt may have gotten his or her point across, police are currently looking for the suspect who removed and gun, ammunition and knife from the vehicle. The suspect could face charges of armed burglary.

According to a Florida criminal defense attorney’s website, “It is a burglary to enter both a conveyance and a part of a dwelling any kind, including the attached porch even if it’s a temporary; that is a non-permanent structure. It can include mobile homes which have a roof over it and are designed to be occupied by people at night, it always includes the land and property the dwelling sits on. The burglary statute in Florida defines a conveyance as any motor vehicle, vessel, railroad car or ships, trailer, aircraft or sleeping car.”

“If you enter an automobile with the purpose of stealing something inside you committed burglary of a conveyance: a first-degree felony.”










He broke all the rules of a responsible handgun owner.



You never ever leave a loaded weapon in a car
You never leave you car unlocked

    • @Americanalltheway On the other hand, what if some kid found it on the guys porch. Who is responsible then? Imo, that car is someones property, stay the phuk out. And yes I agree if you go inside take it with you, and never let it leave your sight.

  • A good Samaritan teaching someone a lesson well deserved and is still witch hunted by the cops, REASON! they want money out of his ass! has nothing to do with what happened. POLICE HAVE BECOME BUSINESS MEN FOR THE STATE! THERE ONLY AFTER YOUR MONEY. SOME KID COULD HAVE DIED OR DID SOMETHING STUPID AND YET THE POLICE ARE STILL NOT THANK FULL TO THIS PERSON WHO DID IT.

  • Oh yes, I definitely like the strapping to the car seat so that it can be right between your legs. Very nice, indeed.

  • The shit thing is, if they found this guy he'd get a criminal record for doing a GOOD thing!

    If a kid had got the gun and shot someone the owner would of. The owner should be charged for armed burglary... "But for his actions...ect"

    • @Obeyak if the guy is found he should be asked why he didn't confront the guy like a man, or inform authorities of the gun....or explain why he was looking in someones car anyhow.

    • @TheBlueLion It's obviously someone trying to prove a point, and they more than likely know the guy. Nothing was removed from the car other than the gun and knifes. Unless you count the missing bullets, but only an IDIOT would leave a gun lying about next ot bullets. If it was a "thief" then surely they would of stolen the gun and knifes...

      And just think of the charges that would be brought against him confronting the man about having a gun in his car whilst in possession of the gu More..

  • I am all for responsible gun ownership, but where does this "good samaritan" draw the line. B & E still is what it is. He is lucky he didn't get caught by the homeowner, as I am sure that is not his only gun. Find him and charge him, before his "lessons" cost someone there life. Does this perp check everyone's locks on cars just to find something in there worth whining about? Someone please arrest him before he gets someone killed trying to teach "lessons" to pe More..
