A bold thief stole three handguns and an FBI agent’s badge and credentials from a locked vehicle in the San Francisco Bay Area in what is the latest theft of stolen firearms from law enforcement vehicles, the Associated Press reports. 

Stolen were two 40-caliber Glocks and one .45-caliber handgun as the vehicle was parked in a residential neighborhood of Benicia, FBI spokeswoman Gina Swankie said.

The FBI declined to release details, including why the weapons and other FBI property were left inside the vehicle overnight. But the spokeswoman said a $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the stolen property.

“Our primary objective is recovery of the items stolen and identification and arrest of the individuals involved,” Swankie said. “There’s a lot of information that would be premature to offer at this time.”

Federal investigators are trying to determine whether recent attacks on the fiber optic systems in California are tied to a “more complex plot” against the Super Bowl in the San Francisco area.

Internal memos between the FBI and Homeland Security show that intelligence analysts are worried about a series of unsolved incidents in which fiber optic cables were deliberately severed in the Bay Area, NBC reports. 

The memo detailed risks that include the fiber optic system, drones and attacks in crowded areas outside of Levi’s Stadium.

Still, the memo read, “The FBI and DHS have no information to indicate any specific, credible threats to or associated with Super Bowl 50 or related events.”

The memo also warned that attacks by an individual – as opposed to a larger terrorist group – “are of particular concern.”

Between July 2014 and June 2014, at least 10 fiber optic cables were deliberately severed in areas relatively close to the stadium.

It wasn’t immediately clear which agency the agent worked for.

Authorities are worried about a spate of attacks on high-capacity Internet cables in the San Francisco Bay Area in the past year, including one early Tuesday morning, USA Today reports.

The latest attack, which involved breaking into an underground vault and cutting fiber-optic cables, cut off Internet service for businesses and residents in and around Sacramento.

Authorities were tight-lipped about the impact of the attack because of the ongoing investigation.

The attacks began in the summer of 2014, said FBI Special Agent Greg Wuthrich.

“When it affects multiple companies and cities, it does become disturbing,” Wuthrich said. “We definitely need the public’s assistance.”
