2 weeks ago!!

FORT IRWIN, Calif. (AP) - More than two dozen assault rifles have been stolen from a Southern California military base, and investigators sought the public's help as they looked to arrest suspects and recover the weapons, federal officials said Friday.

Twenty-six AK-74 assault rifles and one Dragunov sniper rifle were stolen from a supply warehouse at Fort Irwin in San Bernardino County on July 15, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says in a statement.

Some arrests have been made and one rifle has been recovered, but the agency is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to further arrests, the statement said

Why did they wait so long to alert the public? It wasn't Operation Fast and Furious /sarc

Via Kenny Solomon: "We determined that there was a public safety issue with the guns getting out on the street," he[ATF spokesman Special Agent Christian Hoffman] said.

It took two weeks to worry about public safety? Gawd..
