Boise police are appealing to the public to identify who's responsible for stealing firearms from a parked pickup in West Boise.

Police said the theft happened between midnight and 6:45 a.m. May 24 in the parking lot of an apartment complex near North Maple Grove Road and Susan Drive. Several guns, magazines and ammunition were taken from the locked pickup, officials said.
