ALBUQUERQUE — Police said Thursday that they have recovered an assault rifle and a shotgun that were stolen last month from APD Detective Zach Stephenson.

On Thursday morning, the Journal published a story saying that thieves had broken into Stephenson's unmarked, city-owned pickup truck in the parking lot of the Puerto del Sol golf course on Oct. 26 and made off with the rifle, "flashbang" distraction devices and a shotgun that fires Taser prongs — all APD-owned — and Stephenson's personal bulletproof body armor and other items.
