Two guns were stolen Sunday morning from an FBI-issued vehicle in Northeast Washington, authorities said.
The bureau-issued weapons — a handgun and a long gun— were secured inside a lock box, said Katherine Zackel, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Washington field office. She said the entire lock box was stolen.
D.C. police said the vehicle, a Ford Expedition, was broken into between 6:45 a.m. and 7:49 a.m. During that hour it was parked in the 800 block of 7th Street NE. At some point, someone smashed the vehicle’s rear passenger window and took the box, which held the Glock and Colt guns.
Zackel said the vehicle was locked. She added that investigators are examining surveillance video in the area.
