Weapons Stolen From Utah County Sheriff's Truck


KUTV) LEHI "A Utah County Sheriff's pickup was broken into overnight and the thief got away with several items including an assault rifle and high-power shotgun.

The robbery occurred sometime between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m. outside an officer's Lehi home.

Officers say having the weapons out on the street is of great concern.

"They're restricted, for law enforcement use only. One of them was a Mossberg 12-guage (sic) shotgun with a 14-inch barrel. The other was an assault rifle, a G36 H & K," said Lehi Police Sgt. Jeff Swenson.

Other items taken from the truck included a laptop computer, a first aid kit, spike strips, a fingerprint kit, a flashlight, binoculars, gas cards, portable breathalyzer testing equipment and a camera.

Those responsible could face felony and federal charges if caught.

A reward for information about the burglary has been offered. Anyone with information should contact Lehi police or the Utah County Sheriff's Office."

So a shorty shotty with less potential smackdown than a peon-legal version is HI-POWERED because...?

Must be because it uses a guage, whatever that is. And please now. H&K's G36. Named that, because jamomatic-piece-of-donkey-turd was already taken, probably.

Note to self: Never leave a shitload of expensive gear in the car overnight. Unless of course it's no skin off my ass if taxpayer-funded stuff gets swiped.
