Police Recover Stolen FBI Weapons

Police have recovered two weapons that were stolen from an FBI SWAT vehicle parked in Andover yesterday morning or Wednesday evening, police officials said. The suspect remains at large.

The weapons were recovered in the neighboring city of Lawrence. Police officials said they used fingerprints to track the weapons.

The recovered weapons are a Colt M16-A1 Rifle and a HS Precision Pro-Series 2000 Sniper Rifle. FBI Boston was offering up to a $20,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the two weapons, according to a press release published on Thursday by FBI Boston.

Items were stolen from other vehicles parked at nearby homes in Andover during the same time as the weapons theft.

Phillips Academy Public Safety was contacted last night but could not comment on the story at this time.
