Federal agents are trying to identify a suspect who stole more than a dozen firearm from a Delaware gun shop.

The biggest concern is that the 13 handguns and rifle could end up in the hands of criminals in Baltimore, WJZ reports. The suspected broke into the gun shop and stole the weapons, setting off a manhunt.

“The ATF’s number one priority is to keep illegal firearms from winding up in the hands of criminals so that’s our goal today to make sure that we act as quickly as possible,” says ATF Special Agent David Cheplak.

The ATF is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the suspect’s arrest.

“The majority of the violence we’re seeing here in Baltimore is being committed with firearms that are illegally obtained,” Cheplak said.

Despite catching flack from critics, Vice President Joseph R. Biden will continue to charge the Secret Service rent for a cottage on his Delaware property so they can protect him, the Washington Times reports.

The paper reports that a Nov. 2 purchase order shows Secret Service approved rent payments of $2,200 a month for the next 12 months.

The Washington Times reports that Biden has been charging the agency rent for a while.

The Washington Times reported that Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for the Citizens Against Government Waste, a watchdog group, questioned whether Biden should be charging Secret Service if he wants to keep promoting his image as a cost cutter trying to reduce government waste.

“If he’s into the symbolic gestures, this is where he ought to start. He should start literally in his own backyard,” Paige told the paper. “Let’s hear his rationale for why he can’t forgo this $26,000.”
