SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. – A San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy is without a gun and other law enforcement equipment after someone took it from a Fontana area home Monday.

The unknown suspect, or suspects, got into the deputy’s home between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. after gaining access to the backyard and entering through a back door, the Sheriff’s Department stated in a news release.
