CINCINNATI (WXIX) -Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey’s assigned county car was stolen from her driveway Saturday with her gun inside.

Sheriff McGuffey told FOX19 her car was stolen from her Columbia Tusculum home and was found near Kings Run Drive and Winnestee Avenue.

The gun, however, was not found.

She says she responded to an incident involving a man barricading himself Friday night. When she got home, she parked her unmarked car in the driveway.

Sheriff McGuffey says, as is normal for her, she left her gun in a secured compartment in her locked car.

As she was leaving for the airport for a Sheriff’s conference around 8 a.m. Saturday morning, she noticed her car was stolen and reported it.

Her car was later recovered in Winton Terrace around 1 p.m. She says there were no damages.

Deputies do not have a suspect at this time.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department says that the investigation is ongoing.
