MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. - An M-240 machine gun unaccounted for last month has been recovered, according to a spokesperson with Minot Air Force Base.
According to a release from the base, special agents with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations obtained a federal search warrant and recovered the gun in an airman’s off-base residence Tuesday.
The weapon was reported missing May 16.
No further information was released at this time since the investigation is ongoing.
The missing gun, along with a lost can of grenades, prompted a weapons inventory across eight military installations, and the security commander for the 91st Missile Wing was relieved of his duties.
