Two rifles were stolen from an FBI SWAT vehicle in Andover, Massachusetts and the agency has offered a $20,000 reward for any information regarding the theft.

According to the Associated Press, a 16-year-old boy is currently in custody for allegedly stealing law enforcement weapons as the FBI continues an internal investigation into the matter. A relative of the boy reportedly delivered the guns to the Lawrence police department around 2:30 a.m. Friday morning.

No details were provided on the case. Both the FBI and Andover police would only confirm that the guns had been returned.

FBI officials said the rifles were stolen sometime between Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. The guns – a Colt M16-A1 Rifle and an HS Precision Pro-Series 2000 Sniper Rifle – were inside a vehicle parked in one of Andover’s residential neighborhoods.
