Annibali said that the thief smashed the passenger side window of his car around 11:30 p.m. Sunday outside his Arroyo Grande home.
The thief took Annibali’s response bag, which contained his identification, badge, gun and other emergency supplies.
Annibali said he locked the car and did not place the bag in view, so he believes the person who broke into the car was looking specifically for the stolen items.
The Arroyo Grand Police Department is investigating the case and has yet to identify any suspects.
Annibali said that in retrospect he should have taken his response bag out of the car.
He said he wants the public to know what happened, so everyone is aware that this type of crime could happen to them.
