In March 2017, officials found some 200 police service pistols that once belonged to the now-disbanded Compton Police Department. When officers returned to the vault that had stored the guns, they discovered that 31 of the Glock and Beretta pistols were missing, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors recently renewed a $10,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the guns, matching an identical offer from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, putting the total reward at $20,000.

The ATF is handling the investigation.

Seriously shouldn't it be easy to find out who had access to a POLICE VAULT!. Geez, how sloppy can a department be. Someone internally must have taken them, heads should roll.

It was the dirty city of Compton"s vault. That city has been corrupt for 60 years and when the LASD took over in year 2000, the city said they wanted their "city property" to remain with them. So, lil by lil, the guns were stolen by a Compton city employee.
