    Rifle and Ammo Stolen From CHP Unit

    Burglar steals rifle, ammo from CHP cars at Contra Costa headquarters

    MARTINEZ In what is being described as a brazen theft, at least one burglar broke into a secure California Highway Patrol lot and took a tactical rifle and ammunition from two squad cars, the CHP said.

    The burglary occurred sometime between 1:30 a.m. Monday and 1:30 a.m. this morning, when the break-in was discovered by a patrol sergeant, said CHP Officer Tom Maguire.

    The sergeant noticed that a portion of the chain-link fence that surrounds the lot had been cut out, and upon investigating further, found that two cars were forced open. A Colt Sporter Match H-Bar semiautomatic rifle was taken from one of the cars, and ammunition for the rifle was taken from both.

    The burglary is being handled by the CHP's investigative services division.
    Maguire said the burglar had to be wily and use a great amount of brute force to break the electric lock used to secure the rifle in the vehicle, which was located in an area surrounded by the fence, barbed wire, keypad locks, and is well-lighted and supervised all day.
    "In 11 years, I don't remember anything like this happening before," Maguire said.

    Maguire said the missing weapon resembles a military tactical rifle, and may look suspicious if seen in non-police hands. Anyone with information about the burglary can contact the Contra Costa area field office at 925-646-4980 or the agency's tip line at 800-TELL-CHP.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    No shit - poor trooper has to settle for a fucking sporter so it doesn't offend anyone.

    Great security there I'll bet it's upgraded or the weapons will be stored safely. That sucker will be torn apart and put on a legal cold stripped lower.

    No doubt. Probably end up being a 10 year old.

    Gotta remember. It's Kalifornia. It IS extremely suspicious if seen in non-police hands because the Iron Curtain that is Kalifornia's political engine won't allow them to be in the hands of good honest people. So they're either seen in the hands of cops or crooks.
