The FBI's Indianapolis office has posted a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest in the theft of weapons and equipment from a vehicle parked in a residential neighborhood in the northwest section of that city.
During the evening hours of Sept. 16 and morning hours of Sept. 17, thieves broke into 10 additional vehicles or residences in the area, according to Michael Welch, special agent.
The stolen weapons include an H & K MP5/10A3 10 mm gun, a Rock River Arms LAR-15 rifle, and a Springfield 1911A1 .45 caliber handgun. Additionally, a large green duffel-style gear bag was stolen that contained an FBI SWAT uniform and two sets of green-colored body armor, one set having FBI letters displayed on the front and back.
The FBI, along with agents and officers of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE), the Indiana State Police (ISP), and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), are jointly investigating this matter.
Anyone with information regarding the above is asked to contact the FBI's Indianapolis office at (317) 639-3301.
