FBI Weapons Cache Stolen
By Brian Hartman ABCNEWS.com
Thieves stole, torched and emptied an FBI special operations van left parked outside a Memphis, Tenn., hotel, looting a cache of high-powered assault weapons, grenade launchers, bullet-proof shields and tear-gas guns. M-16 military rifles, shotguns and ammunition were among the take Tuesday in what FBI officials called a very serious theft. FBI officials are teaming up with Memphis police to blanket the area and recover the stockpile of weapons.
The burned-out shell of the GMC suburban van, emptied of its cargo, was found early Tuesday by Memphis authorities. Included in the stolen cache were bulletproof shields with FBI logos and various sidearms. The van, said FBI special agent John Hancock,belonged to one of a half-dozen FBI special weapons and tactics squads in Memphis for a regional training exercise. Agents from Arkansas had parked the vehicle outside an East Memphis hotel before it was stolen, he said. The vehicle was recovered 10 miles from the hotel.
Agent Downplays Theft
It's an extremely serious situation, Hancock said. These weapons will be recovered and we will find out who committed the theft and we will not stop until the investigation is settled. When asked how such a theft could occur, Hancock said, These weapons could be stolen from a sporting goods store. Would you ask that same question of the sporting-goods store dealer? About 500 officers from various law enforcement agencies and the military were gathering in Memphis for crisis response training.
The incident comes as the FBI, embroiled in controversy and criticism for much of the past year, is basking in praise for its investigation of Timothy McVeigh, convicted Monday on all 11 counts in the Oklahoma City bombing. Agents had hoped the verdict might dispel criticism of the bureau stemming from a Justice Department report about the work of its world-renowned crime laboratory and from its failure to solve last summer s Olympics bombing in Atlanta and two subsequent blasts there.
The bureau also took heat for pursuing the wrong man, Richard Jewell, for three months in the Olympics case and trying to trick him into waiving his right to counsel during an interview. Three agents are being disciplined for their work on that case.
FBI Director Louis J. Freeh likely will be questioned about the Memphis episode at his previously scheduled appearance Wednesday before a Senate committee conducting oversight of the bureau.
