Why would there be an assault rifle (or any police equipment) left in an unmarked car parked outside the home of an officer?
Authorities in Larimer County are trying to hunt down a suspect who broke into a Larimer County sheriff's deputy's unmarked car and stole a treasure trove of law enforcement equipment.
The suspect took the deputy's Armalite AR-15 assault rifle, a Remington 12-gauge shotgun, two Motorola police radios, a bullet-proof vest, road spikes, hazardous materials equipment including a gas mask and a black baseball cap with the sheriff's department logo on it.
The break-in happened between Saturday night and Sunday morning. The deputy's unmarked car was parked in the driveway of a home in the 4000 block of Vista Drive in Fort Collins. Neighbors told police there had been several vehicle break-ins in the area recently.
Anyone with information on the break-in is asked to call the Larimer County Sheriff's Office or Fort Collins police.
