Guns, tactical vests stolen from state vehicle in Fruita
Three rifles and four law enforcement tactical vests were stolen from a Colorado Parks & Wildlife truck Thursday night in Fruita.
No arrest has been made since the incident, a Fruita Police Department spokesperson confirmed Sunday, and no suspect description has been developed by investigators.
The guns are a Remington 308 bolt-action rifle with a scope, a Remington 870 12-gauge, pump-action shotgun, and a Ruger M77 Hawkeye bolt-action rifle.
The pickup truck was broken into while parked at a private residence, according to the CPW.
Warnings about the incident were broadcast over police radios in the Denver metro area.
A spokesperson for the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office says this incident is not related to the search for a fugitive in the Glade Park area.
