An M-16, a shotgun, night vision equipment and body armor were all stolen from an FBI agent's car in Southpark.
The FBI showed Channel 9 the type of gun stolen from the agents car on Aug. 15.
“We take it very seriously. We are using all of our resources available to us to recover the weapons and to identify the individuals responsible for stealing them,” said FBI Special Agent Charlotte Division John Strong.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for anyone who has any information that could lead to an arrest in the case.
"We understand the danger that is faced by having these types of weapons in the hands of untrained and unauthorized individuals," Strong said.
The agent is part of a special response team and must be ready to respond 24/7 and is authorized to store weapons in his vehicle.
Anyone with information is urged to call Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
