Thousands of dollars in bullets are missing from a Connecticut State Police barracks.
That’s what the I-Team found out when Chief Investigative Reporter Eric Park dug through records.
You'd have a hard time finding anywhere in the state more secure than a state police barracks, and Troop K in Colchester is no exception.
From patrol troopers, to detectives and the even specialized units like the bomb squad are based there, and there are a lot of eyes around to make sure nothing goes missing.
According to a report from the office of the state comptroller, it totals more than $28,265.86 in items the state police can’t find.
But what makes it alarming isn't the dollar value, it's the items on the list.
Thirty cases of hollow point ammunition…gone. A rifle scope, disappeared. Two breaching doors they can't find, and more than $1,000 in other law enforcement supplies also missing -- bullets, a scope, training aides, and supplies, gone.
Because it's a building full of investigators, the I-Team asked state police what they know about how the items that disappeared, but a spokeswoman would only say the whole matter was under investigation by the FBI.
The FBI typically doesn't provide details or updates on their investigations and when the I-Team asked about this one, all they said is “no comment.”
