Rifles & SWAT Body Armor Taken After Undercover SWAT Car Burglary

(HERBER CITY, Utah) -- An undercover SWAT car was burglarized in Herber City, Utah, according to local police.

The car was just one of three that was either burglarized or stolen in the area. While the car wasn't stolen, the thieves managed to take numerous police items, including an AR-15 rifle, a pistol, a shotgun and SWAT body armor and uniforms.

"These are brazen criminals; we would like to stop [them] quickly. It's important to find them and get the equipment back in the right hands," Heber City Police Department Lt. Jason Bradley said in a statement.

Police haven't said if the car was targeted because it was a SWAT vehicle, but Public Information Officer Xela Thomas said the car had "minimal police decals" and wasn't in use at the time of the burglary.

Police did not describe the car, since they hope to use it in future operations, but Thomas said it was generic and didn't have any special features such as armored siding.

Another car four houses down from the SWAT vehicle was also burglarized and a third was stolen.

Anyone with information can call the police department at 435-654-1411.
