BIG PINE KEY, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in the Florida Keys have recovered some of the equipment stolen from a Monroe County deputy's patrol car, but they haven't found any suspects.
The cruiser belonged to a sergeant who lives in Big Pine Key. His personal handgun, an automatic rifle and a pistol were stolen from inside the car and from the trunk Monday. Detectives and investigators don't know how the suspects got inside the car. Also taken were tactical SWAT gear, including a bullet resistant vest, and ammunition for all three guns.
Most of the equipment, including the ammunition and SWAT gear, was found late Tuesday after authorities received a tip. Still missing are the sergeant's two handguns.
A $1,000 reward is being offered for any tips leading to an arrest.
