The equipment, a .223-caliber rifle and body armor, was stolen from an unmarked vehicle in Stillwater, Minn.

The vehicle was parked in the driveway of a home in the 1900 block of Oak Glen Lane. Several vehicles at the home were broken into and several items are missing; however, police are most interested in the items missing from the federal vehicle.

Other items taken from the vehicle include a 35mm SLR camera, a couple of pairs of binoculars, a video camera, two GPS units, backpacks and bags, emergency and first aid equipment, rain gear and winter jackets.

The rifle was in a locked and mounted rack, which the thieves removed from the vehicle.
