LOS ANGELES - The FBI and agencies in Southern California are investigating the theft of a military Humvee.
Investigators say the vehicle was stolen around 8 a.m. Friday from a military facility in Los Angeles. It is green camouflage in color, and has the battalion number, 40th BSB, on the back left side.
The Humvee that was stolen was “up-armored,” according to officials, meaning it had been upgraded and is considered a combat vehicle. They say the Humvee is worth about $120,000.
Theft from a military facility, which is considered government property, violates federal law and if someone is found guilty they could be sentenced to up to ten years in a federal prison.
The FBI is offering a reward up to $10,000 for information leading to the recovery of the Humvee.
