Semi-Automatic Weapon Stolen from Oregon State Police Car
LA GRANDE, Ore. - Police in La Grande are looking for the people who stole a semi-automatic rifle from a marked Oregon State Police car.
Officers say last week, the trooper had parked the car outside his home overnight. The next morning, officers say someone had smashed a window and taken the firearm that had been in a mounted locked bracket.
State and La Grande police are investigating, along with a team from the OSP Crime Lab in Pendleton, but haven't found any suspects.
Officers say it's extremely rare for a marked police vehicle to be the target of a break-in.
