Memphis Thieves Rob SWAT Team

Posted By on Wed, Apr 25, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Say what you will about Memphis' crime problem, our crooks have cojones the size of cantalopes.

The Wake County, North Carolina, SWAT team was on its way to a SWAT competition in Little Rock, Arkansas, on Monday, when they stopped in Memphis to sample some of the famous food at Interstate Bar-B-Que on South Third.

While team members were enjoying their meal, some unidentified suspects in a stolen Ford Expedition broke into the SWAT vehicle and stole all the high-powered weapons the team had left in the car.

The vehicle used in the break-in has since been recovered, but the weapons, including three fully automatic rifles, have not yet been located. More details are available at the WMC-TV 5 Website.

We're still trying to imagine the scene at the competition in Little Rock: "Uh, hey, can we, like, borrow a couple AK-47s..."
