Lax TSA procedures may have led to the theft of thousands of rounds of ammunition. Media reports say an 18 year old and two minors were allegedly responsible for taking 70 boxes of ammunition that was meant for federal law enforcement agencies.
Hanover, Md- Police for the city reported recovering thousands of rounds of ammunition stolen from U.S. Air Marshals when they came upon a parked truck in the early morning hours around 1 am. Three teens were detained in connection with the crime; 18 year old Brandon Shreve, and his two minor accomplices whose names have not been released. The young men were found with approximately 70 boxes of ammunition meant for law enforcement use, and normally stored at the Baltimore-Washington International Marshall airport.
TSA is trying to determine if all procedures in securing the ammunition were followed. All 3 boys have been charged with multiple counts of theft.
Cops and national guard armories are also ammunition theft targets.
