Democratic Rep. Karen Bass of California said in a statement last week that two guns had been stolen from her home.

“Last night, I came home and discovered that my house had been broken into and burglarized,” the lawmaker said in a statement on Saturday, according to reports. “LAPD was called, and I appreciate their assistance. At this time, it appears that only two firearms, despite being safely and securely stored, were stolen. Cash, electronics and other valuables were not. It’s unnerving and, unfortunately, it’s something that far too many Angelenos have faced.”

The lawmaker’s communication’s director Sarah Leonard Sheahan informed the Los Angeles Times that the firearms belonged to Bass and noted that they had been stowed in a Brinks lock box. Leonard Sheahan noted that nobody was at the house when the incident occurred.

The outlet linked to a Los Angeles Police Department press release. The notice, which does not mention Bass’s name, states, “On September 9, 2022, a suspect entered an unoccupied residence and removed property from the location. According to the victim, there are several valuables, electronics, and US Currency in view that were not taken.” The press release adds that, “The suspect is described as a male, Hispanic, standing 5 feet and 9 inches tall, weighing 200 pounds, wearing dark clothing and a surgical mask, blue baseball cap with a white logo emblem, and black Asics sneakers.”

Bass, who has served in the U.S. House of Representatives for more than a decade, is currently running for Los Angeles mayor. She is facing off against Rick Caruso. Earlier this year, Elon Musk endorsed Caruso.

“Los Angeles is fortunate to have someone like Rick Caruso running for mayor. He’s awesome,” Musk tweeted in early June. “It is rare for me to endorse political candidates. My political leanings are moderate, so neither fully Republican nor Democrat, which I am confident is the case for most Americans. Executive competence is super underrated in politics – we should care about that a lot more!” Musk added in another tweet.
