The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward to help retrieve an assault-style weapon, a handgun and other equipment stolen July 10 from an agency vehicle parked along the H Street corridor in Northeast Washington.
Authorities said the vehicle — a Ford Expedition — was locked and that someone smashed a rear window and took a secured gun lockbox. The agent reported the missing items to police at about 7:50 a.m.; the FBI said they think the break-in occurred between midnight and 2 a.m.
The missing items include a Rock River Arms LAR-15 rifle, similar to an AR-15; a Glock 22 handgun; a holster; a collapsible baton; pepper spray; two boxes of .40 caliber ammunition; protective head and eye gear; and a black TruckVault gun box.
The FBI said in a statement that it and D.C. police are “working to locate these weapons and remove them from the possession of the untrained individuals who may have them.”
Anyone with information about the weapon or other items is urged to call the FBI’s Washington field office at 202-278-2000.
