April 20, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A city police officer's service weapon, which was left inside his stolen personal car, was recovered yesterday in a Northeast Baltimore house. His handcuffs were found in a sewer nearby.

Officer Brian M. Pedrick's 1999 Dodge Neon was stolen about 11 p.m. Monday in front of his home in Dundalk, police said. Inside the car was Pedrick's official 9 mm Glock handgun and handcuffs.

The car was recovered early Tuesday in the 3300 block of Noble St. in Southeast Baltimore, said Kevin Enright, a police spokesman. Information gathered during an investigation led to the house where the gun was found, he said.

Police were seeking several suspects, Enright said.

Enright said an internal investigation is being conducted but that Pedrick, an 18-year veteran assigned to the Central District, remains on duty.

The department's general orders say it is an officer's responsibility to always secure his weapon if he is not wearing it, Enright said.
