    Hill A.F.B. looking for man seen taking M16s

    Hill Air Force Base officials believe a missing box of M-16s may have fallen off a government vehicle Wendesday and on Thursday they issued a "Wanted" bulletin for a man suspected of picking up the container and putting it in his car.

    The suspect is described as a white male, 40-50 years old, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, heavy set with gray hair and possibly balding on the top. The only description of his vehicle is that it's a four-door green car.

    "The individual was witnessed placing the container in his vehicle and departing the area," the Hill bulletin stated.

    The green plastic case containing 12 M-16 rifles is 18 inches high, 24 inches wide and 3 feet, 7 inches in length. The box was reported missing at around 3:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wardleigh and Browning Road, south of the installation's Roy gate.

    "Determining the whereabouts of these missing weapons is our top priority," Hill 75th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Linda Medler said. "It's possible the rifles fell off a government vehicle while being moved from one location on base to another."

    An ongoing investigation Thursday also involved local law enforcement.

    Hill is asking anyone with information about the rifles to call Air Force Office of Special Investigations at 801-777-1852 or 801-777-6745. After hours call 801-777-3056 or 801-777-3057.

    The local news here says they were in a GSA type vehicle. So, unsecured, and someone stole them, smart.

    Yeah if they were FA or burst, it would be a bad situation to get caught in. I honestly would've done the same (initially be like OMG free guns, then "wait, I could get in a lot of trouble.)

    You'd have like 5 felon charges if you got caught.

    Involved PSL's that were never machine guns nor meant to be, but they all had to be recalled. Then its happend with Maadi's and Norinco's back in the day too.
    I knew someone who had one of the 3rd hole Maadi's.
