This just in from the Dallas Police Department:

The Dallas Police Department has discovered an apparent theft of 38 cases of ammunition from storage bunkers at the Firearms Training Center located at 3200 Mountain Creek Parkway. The theft occurred within the last 30 days and involves ammunition for both rifles and handguns. The theft appears to have been committed by someone with access to the facility; our Public Integrity Unit has initiated an investigation into the incident. It is anticipated that this will be a lengthy investigative process. We will not comment on any other specifics until it has concluded. Our daily operations have not been impacted by this incident.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
