Training pistols and body armor were among items snatched from a state police shooting range in Simsbury last year.
While an arrest was made, troopers were not able to recover all of the stolen items.
The I-Team began looking into the case as part of its You Bought It, They Lost It series.
The theft happened in Aug. 2016.
A sergeant was opening up the office on a Monday morning when he noticed that things weren't right.
A quick search revealed 11 training pistols that fire simulated bullets were missing.
Four sets of body armor were also gone, along with a compound bow and arrows which belonged to a trooper.
A little digging turned up that a burglar alarm had gone off over that weekend.
When Simsbury police responded, they didn't see anything amiss.
The losses totaled $12,385.
With the exception of that personally-owned bow, they were items that you bought and they lost.
In March 2017, state police said they made an arrest for the break-in.
They charged 38-year-old Judd Girard of Simsbury.
Troopers said he admitted to the theft and said he sold the guns to a drug dealer and another man in Hartford.
He pleaded not guilty and his case is still pending.
Documents reveal that some of the items were recovered; however, many are still missing.
The missing property report filed with the Office of the State Comptroller showed they installed a new door with a deadbolt lock to prevent future thefts.
State police are in the process of moving their range to a state-of-the-art facility in Griswold.
