License-to-carry instructor Cassie Shockey, of Shoot Smart indoor shooting range, talks firearm safety rules to ensure safety when handling a gun.

A former star of TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” reported that two fully loaded handguns were stolen from her car parked outside a Macon hotel last week.

The windows of five cars had been smashed out during the predawn hours March 22 at Macon Marriott City Center.

A gray 2003 Nissan Xterra belonging to Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, sister to Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and daughter to “Mama June” Shannon, was among the damaged vehicles.

Shannon told the deputy that a “LPC 380 (pistol) and a Security Ruger” were missing from underneath the seats, according to an incident report from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. Both guns were in holsters.

The 18-year-old also said her wallet, “which contained her Social Security card and the Social Security card of her deceased grandmother,” also was missing from her car.

Another woman told the deputy that an Apple MacBook Pro, left on the back seat of her dark green 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, had been stolen, the report said.

Drivers of the other three cars that had windows busted out told the deputy nothing was missing.

A security officer told the deputy that the hotel’s surveillance cameras “are not operating at this time.”
