FBI tracks down stolen agency vehicle, gun still missing in Pittsburgh area

PITTSBURGH — FBI officials are trying to find a missing gun that was taken out of a stolen agency vehicle in the Pittsburgh area on Tuesday.

Chopper 11 was flying over the Hill District and caught the moment a stolen FBI vehicle was being towed away as evidence in the investigation. The unmarked SUV was stolen from Schenley Park.

When it was found at the intersection of Wylie Avenue and Hollace Street in the Hill District, investigators learned the 9mm gun was gone.

An FBI spokesperson released the following statement on Tuesday:

“FBI Pittsburgh is asking for the public’s help to locate a weapon that was inside an FBI government vehicle that was stolen around 1:30 p.m. from Schenley Park today. The FBI, in partnership with Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, is devoting significant resources to locate the weapon, a Glock 19M 9mm, and remove it from the possession of the untrained individual(s) who may have it. All area law enforcement agencies were quickly notified of the theft and are assisting the FBI. Anyone with information should call FBI Pittsburgh immediately at 412-432-4000. No other information is available.”

It’s not clear at this point if the vehicle was left unlocked at the time it was stolen.
