Investigators are looking for 2,000 rounds of ammunition that were missing from an order at a VA facility in Pennslyvania, according to reports.
According to VA Pittsburgh, it received an order for ammunition for police training last week, CBS Pittsburgh and WTAE reported. Although the VA police quickly noticed that some of the order was not there.
In an emailed statement to the press, Shelley Kay Nulph, Public and Community Relations Manager for the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, had this to say: “VA Pittsburgh received a pallet of police training ammunition on April 10. Within an hour of receipt, VA Police noted that two cases, consisting of 2,000 rounds, were missing from the order.”
“They immediately notified the VA’s Office of Safety and Law Enforcement and Office of the Inspector General and began their own internal investigation. VA police also contacted the manufacturer and the shipping companies, who are conducting separate internal reviews,” Nulph continued.
The investigation is underway. Therefore, this story is in development. As of publication, it is unknown if the ammunition is missing or lost, or if someone stole it from the order.
