SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Three handguns and an FBI agent’s badge have been stolen from a locked and alarmed vehicle in the latest incident in the San Francisco Bay Area.

FBI spokeswoman Gina Swankie says two .40 caliber Glocks and one .45 caliber handgun were stolen from an FBI vehicle parked in a residential neighborhood in Benicia early Friday. An FBI badge, credentials and other FBI property were also taken.

The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward, but Swankie offered few details about what happened.

In two of the recent thefts, firearms stolen from law enforcement agents’ vehicles were later used in fatal slayings.

Handguns stolen from law enforcement officers’ cars last year were used in the San Francisco killing of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in July and 27-year-old Oakland muralist Antonio Ramos in September.
