DALLAS (AP) - Investigators suspect an inside job in the disappearance of 38 cases of ammunition from the Dallas Police Department firearms training center.
A police statement issued Wednesday says the ammunition is missing from storage bunkers at the center near Mountain Creek Lake in southwest Dallas.
According to the statement, the theft happened within the last 30 days and includes ammunition for both rifles and handguns.
The statement goes on to say that the theft "appears to have been committed by someone with access to the facility," so the department's Public Integrity Unit has begun investigating. According to the statement, a lengthy investigation is expected.
