Blue Grass Army Depot probes ammunition theft

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - The commander of the Blue Grass Army Depot
says a civilian employee is under investigation after 118 rounds of
ammunition taken from the facility were found at the employee's
home.
Col. Brian Rogers told WKYT-TV in Lexington that agents from the
Defense Criminal Investigative Service executed a search warrant
and found the 5.56 mm ammunition used by depot security guards. Rogers says the weapons were taken from a firearms training range.
Rogers says the employee works as a security guard at the
facility, but has been placed on administrative leave while the
investigation continues. The U.S. Attorney will decide whether to
charge the person.
Rogers says no chemical weapons, which are stored at the
facility, were involved.
