Of course, I gave the officer everything I gave you. But when I called NOPD, they said they didn't have a record of it being stolen. I paid another $25 for the most recent copy of the police report, and all the information is on there. It could be there was some misunderstanding, but two calls to the same woman gave me the same answer- that the serial number doesn't show up.
My other concern is getting it back if it is recovered. A friend of mine had a firearm stolen, and they never contacted him. He called on from time to time and found out it was recovered.
