BOSTON (CBS) — The FBI’s Boston Division is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of weapons stolen from a Worcester armory earlier this month.
Sixteen weapons, including six M-4 rifles and ten M-11 pistols, were stolen on Saturday, November 14. Ten of the weapons, including all of the rifles, have been found–including three found by a homeless man in New York. Six of the M-11 pistols remain missing.
“We’re asking anyone with information about the location of these weapons to come forward, and anyone who may have access to these weapons to turn them in to either the FBI or their local police department,” said Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Division, in a press release.
The FBI released photos of firearms similar to the missing Sig Sauer model P228 pistols, and asked the public to note the ‘U.S.’ government etching on the side of the guns.
James Walker Morales, a 34-year-old former Army reservist, was arrested in connection with the theft by authorities authorities on New York’s Long Island.
