FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Investigators say a 27-year-old man accused of stealing two rifles from a pair of locked Fort Collins police cars left a bank card with his name on it sitting on the front seat of one of the vehicles.

According to the Coloradoan (https://noconow.co/1G4qANt ), police have not recovered the two agency-issued semi-automatic AR-15 rifles stolen last week. Carlos Chavez was arrested this week on suspicion of first-degree criminal trespass and theft.

Police say the guns were stored in rifle locks inside the passenger compartments of the cars when they were removed.

A debit card with Chavez’s name was found in the second vehicle, and detectives contacted a bank investigator to assist, according to court documents. Chavez reported the card stolen Oct. 24, the same day the rifles were discovered missing.
