Investigation into stolen rifles leads to Fresno

Sunday, July 31, 2011

A federal investigation into stolen rifles from an Army post has led law enforcement officers to Fresno. Earlier this month 26 AK-47's went missing from a warehouse at the Fort Irwin Army Post east of Bakersfield.

Federal investigators say they've questioned employees at the warehouse, and at least one person has been arrested in the case. But they believe some of the rifles may have ended up in Fresno.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information in the theft.
