FBI Van Burglarized; SWAT Rifles, Ammo Taken

WJXT-TV

 

JACKSONVILLEFla. - Four sniper rifles, scopes and ammunition were stolen from an FBI SWAT van parked outside a Baymeadows Road hotel before dawn Sunday. The FBI said the guns belonged to a team from Atlanta in Jacksonville to provide extra security for the Super Bowl.

 

A spokesman for the FBI said authorities are concerned these weapons are out on the street and are doing everything possible to try and find whoever took them.

 

Four high-powered rifles with scopes and 80 rounds of 308 ammunition were taken from the unmarked, locked van parked outside the Holiday Inn at Baymeadows and Interstate 95. An agent parked the van at 3:45 a.m. and discovered a few hours later the padlock cut and van burglarized.

 

An internal investigation is under way.

 

The FBI asks anyone with information that could help recover the rifles to call their Jacksonville office at (904) 721-1211.
