Here’s one burglary that will probably get a little more attention from law enforcement than most.

The Indianapolis police reported that thieves broke into an FBI agent’s car on the city’s northwest side Thursday morning and stole a submachine gun, a semiautomatic rifle, .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun and two sets of body armor, according to the Associated Press [2]. AP initially reported that burglars broke into the agent’s home.

The news agency reported that the agent, a member of the SWATT team, had stored the weapons in a chained lockbox.

The AP reported the agents home was among a number of  homes, garages and vehicles that were broken into.
