“I hope these knuckleheads will read the Bible and make a return,” Graves said. “Regardless, I’m very grateful for the swift response of the Atlanta Police Department, the U.S. Capitol Police and other law enforcement officers. I’m confident they will see this incident through to its conclusion.”
Numerous personal items were reported stolen, including items inside a backpack belonging to Graves’ son and a purse belonging to his wife. Both bags were left in the back seat. Graves told police his congressional ID, numerous bank cards, a checkbook, passport and Social Security papers were also missing.
“Mr. Graves also had a gun stolen from the middle console of the vehicle,” the police report states. “He was unaware of the make and model of the gun at the time.”
Loudermilk told police he also had a Glock 17 in the console that was taken, police said.
Investigators determined surveillance cameras were in place on the first and second levels of the parking deck. But Graves had parked on the fourth level, according to police. The investigation into the thefts continued Thursday.
