Apparently, the LAPD had a cache of submachine guns and pistols stolen. Oh, and did I mention that the guns were stolen from the SWAT grounds?
Yeah, a place that is manned by at least one SWAT officer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Don’t worry, though, an LAPD spokesbabe said there is no reason to worry.
Los Angeles police officials searched on Monday for a stolen cache of submachine guns and semi-automatic handguns that disappeared from a SWAT training facility, and said they were embarrassed by the loss.
More than 30 Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine guns and M1911 pistols that had been stored at the training facility were stolen, Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Karen Rayner said. The weapons had been altered to fire blanks, and it would be “difficult” – although not impossible – to convert them back to full use, she said.
See? No reason to worry. The LAPD has got this sh*t. /snark
