LEAGUE CITY — A burglary of a police officer’s personal vehicle has police looking for stolen weapons and caused a brief scare at the county judge’s house Tuesday.

County Judge Mark Henry was startled Tuesday morning when he found a mysterious bag sitting in his driveway. Given the recent Boston Marathon bombings and attacks on elected officials across the country, Henry called League City police.

It turns out the bag found at Henry’s house in the 1500 block of Torrance Drive was a police officer’s “go bag,” which is a tactical bag used by officers to hold extra ammunition, quick response equipment, flashlights, supplies and often a first aid kit. Officers are also known to keep weapons in the bag.
