Waltham Police on Sept. 26 arrested a Dedham man for allegedly
stealing a gun belonging to a deceased former Waltham Police officer, according
to Waltham Police.
Connor Burke, 19, of Dedham, is facing charges for larceny of a firearm, carrying a firearm without a license and larceny from a building.
Police arrested Burke, who was doing construction at the officer's home, after he allegedly stole a revolver belonging to the officer. Burke also allegedly stole the officer's badge and identification.
The revolver, which was
unable to be fired because it had a trigger lock, was later recovered with the
other items, according to police.
Police declined to specify where in Waltham the incident occurred.
