25 AR-15 rifles are missing from the Miami Police Department.
An internal memo obtained by the Miami Herald was sent out listing a warning that if the guns were not returned, they will be reported stolen.
“The city of Miami Police Department is a large police agency, they are responsible for thousands of thousands upon pieces of property, so this is just one prime example of property that unfortunately is unaccounted for,” said Stuart Kapman, a former FBI Special Agent. “Eventually it will turn out that it’s more of an administrative internal paperwork processing, meaning failure inside administratively.”
Five years ago nearly a dozen decades-old guns went missing from the property room.
“They’re going to be able to connect the dots, it’s just going to take some time to figure out where the fault lies,” said Kaplan.
