We had a 1033 rifle go "missing."
What happened was the officer it was issued to turned it into equipment issue for repair.
It sat there for a couple of days.
A new hire needed a rifle so he was brought to equipment issue. The person working equipment issue when the new officer approached was different then
the person working when the officer who was actually assigned the rifle turned it in.
Apparently when the rifle was turned in for repair the equipment person working at the time either wrote down the wrong serial number or forgot to.
It took a week or so to sort out the issue and actually figure out what happened.
Nothing nefarious, just a human error. Obviously it shouldn't of happened but again human error.
I would hazard a guess that most of the "missing" rifles are clerical/human errors and are actually not missing like on the streets or in an officers
As for a humvee missing, I have no clue. We don't have any.
