SEBEKA, Minn., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A police chief in a central Minnesota town who reported ammunition and stun grenades missing found them in his children's backyard fort, authorities say. The Otter Tail Sheriff's Department said Sebeka Police Chief Eric Swenson reported the items missing Friday from his home. Besides the stun grenades and loaded magazines for a Glock 9 mm handgun and an AR-15 rifle, the missing arsenal included gas grenades, gas shotgun rounds, a police radio and a pair of night vision goggles, the Fergus Falls (Minn.) Journal reported Wednesday.

I wish that stuff showed up in my fort.

Ruh Roh.

My half grown puppy absconded with a 5pack of 12 gauge shells that were out just before a trip. Fortunately she hadn't started chewing on them individually before they were recovered.

I could picture the kids in their tree fort, lobbing stun grenades on unsuspecting squirrels digging up the backyard.

I bet they don't have to worry about any muslim terrorists gaining access to their fort.

I’ve heard of people building “ammo forts” before, but this takes it to the next level...

Say what you want about his competence...he was honest and reported the items missing when he could have easily not done so. Then he admitted that his kids had stolen them. Commendable honesty.

I’d rather have an honest Barney than a competent liar.

Why does this guy need such an arsenal? Powerful assault weapons and stockpiles of ammunition? (sarc)

If found in the possession of a civilian in an AP article, it’s an “arsenal”.
