FBI: Weapons Missing After Break-In At Army Facility In Worcester

WORCESTER — The FBI is investigating an overnight break-in at an U.S. Army Reserve armory in Worcester where weapons were apparently taken.

“Nothing at this point in time would tie this to any specific threat or anything else at this point,” Hank Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston division said at a press conference on Sunday.

The missing weapons were entered into a national database, and federal, state, and local law enforcement have been alerted, according to the agency.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker urged the public to remain vigilant in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris.

“The more opportunity people have to rely on citizenry to serve as the eyes and ears, the more it makes a difference,” Baker said at Sunday’s press conference.

“These sorts of things people are going to be chasing and investigating no matter what, and I think it’s important for us to recognize that law enforcement will be collaborating, communicating, cooperating across all levels of government,” Baker said.
