Reward Offered for Information on Burglary of FBI Vehicle
FBI Memphis Division
Supervisory Special Agent Joel E. Siskovic
May 15, 2009
The FBI is offering a reward of $5,000.00 for information leading to the return of stolen property and the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft. In the early morning hours of Wednesday May 13, 2009, a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employee’s official vehicle was burglarized in a north Jackson subdivision. Two other vehicles in the same subdivision were burglarized at the same time. Among the items stolen were a Colt M-4 Semi-automatic tactical rifle (black with collapsible stock), a Remington 12-gauge law enforcement model pump shotgun (black with short barrel), and a blue ballistic vest with the letters “FBI” printed in yellow on the front and back of the vest. There is no information to suggest anyone plans to use the equipment to pose or impersonate an FBI agent; however, in an abundance of caution and with public safety in mind, it is necessary to inform the public about the theft.
“We understand the seriousness of those weapons in untrained hands,” said Special Agent in Charge (SAC) My Harrison, of the FBI’s Memphis Division. SAC Harrison adds “We have committed significant resources and have been working on this theft since it occurred. We are doing everything possible to identify those responsible and recover our property.” All Special Agents of the FBI carry identification credentials bearing a photograph and signature of the employee, as well as a badge identifying themselves as an FBI agent.
Officers and detectives from the Jackson Police Department (JPD) and the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) have also been involved in this investigation. JPD Chief Rick Staples and Sheriff David Woolfork have committed significant resources to this matter.
Anyone with information about these thefts should immediately contact JPD and MCSO through Crime Stoppers, which offers an additional $1,000 for information leading to an arrest, at (731) 424-8477 or the FBI at (731) 668-9578 or (901) 747-4300.
For additional information contact Supervisory Senior Resident Agent A. Todd McCall in the Jackson FBI Office at (731) 668-9578.
