GPS leads search for assault rifle to Oxford Circle home
OXFORD CIRCLE - May 17, 2011 (WPVI) -- Police are hoping to search a house in Philadelphia's Oxford Circle section in hopes of finding a stolen, loaded weapon.
Investigators say someone broke into a home in that area and took several items, including electronics and a loaded M4 assault rifle.
Police tell Action News a GPS locator in one of the stolen items led them to a home in the 5900 block of Shisler Street.
Police don't believe anyone is inside. They're waiting for a search warrant before they move in.
The burglary occurred within the last 24 hours.
