A Los Angeles mayoral candidate who earlier this year said she felt 100 percent safe in her neighborhood was the victim of a home break-in on Friday night.

Karen Bass, a Democrat, said she called the Los Angeles Police Department after coming home to find that her house had been burglarized and two guns had been stolen.

“At this time, it appears that only two firearms, despite being safely and securely stored, were stolen. Cash, electronics and other valuables were not. It’s unnerving and, unfortunately, it’s something that far too many Angelenos have faced,” Bass said, according to Politico.

During a mayoral debate earlier this year, Bass rated how safe she feels in her neighborhood on a scale of 1 to 10:

“I do feel safe. I would say a 10,” Bass said at the time. “I feel safe, but I do understand that a lot of people around the city do not feel safe, and I respect that.”

Bass lives in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Baldwin Vista. The value of her home is estimated on Zillow to be over $2 million.

The guns were legally registered but Bass never sought a permit to carry, her communications director Sarah Leonard Sheahan told the Los Angeles Times.

Crime has now emerged as one of the major issues in the city’s mayoral race, with a Los Angeles Times poll finding that 77 percent of voters are looking for someone who is tough on crime.
