Published reports are saying that a car with an assault rifle and a bulletproof vest in the trunk has been stolen from in front of the South Ozone Park home of an FBI agent.
The vehicle was stolen Tuesday night at about 8 p.m.
The Daily News was saying the car was the agent’s personal vehicle, while CBS News and 1010 WINS Radio were saying it was a government-owned car.
The Wall Street Journal also was reporting that it was a government-owned vehicle; that there was ammunition for the gun in the vehicle; and that the vest was emblazoned with markings identifying the wearer as an FBI agent.
The agent is believed to be the same one who last July pulled a weapon and fired at three men attempting to break into his Lexus.
In that incident, the agent called 911 and fired on the men from his home. He struck Adrian Rickets of Brooklyn in the back.
The agent was not charged following investigations by the NYPD, FBI and Queens District Attorney’s Office.
