A North Carolina man is selling a 1980s-era FBI surveillance van on eBay.

Ginger Senfeldas said he bought the 1989 Dodge Ram 350 on a government auction website.

The van has custom features, including a toilet, extra 12-volt vehicle batteries, TV monitors, video recording equipment and hidden microphones on the exterior, CBS News reports

“We found out that there’s microphones as we took the side markers out of the van, and there’s microphones hidden in headlights and taillights. That’s why there’s little holes everywhere,” he said.

Senfeldas said there also were handcuffs, binoculars and leftover video from an old stakeout.

The auction on eBay , which ends Monday, reached more than $16,000 over the weekend.

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with stealing an FBI-issued SUV after an agent left the vehicle running at a gas station in Chicago early Monday.

When the white 2014 Chevrolet Equinox was stolen from a gas station on the Near West Side at 1 a.m., the SUV contained several firearms and tactical gear, including a bulletproof vest.

Later Monday, police tracked down the SUV after it received a parking ticket parked less than a half-mile away from the FBI Chicago Field Office.

A tow truck removed the SUV, and some of the stolen gear was found in another vehicle earlier in the day.

Police arrested the teen about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday.

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.”
