- We're learning more on why the U.S. Air Force raided a local gun store Friday. They say it wasn't guns they were looking for......An official from the Air Force is speaking to Action News about that raid. New information clarifies that this may have been an inside job, and the penalties could turn out to be very severe.

It was an afternoon that rocked businesses near Dean Martin and Flamingo. Local and federal law enforcement agencies swarmed in and served search warrants on Citadel Gun and Safe....New information gives us an insight on the massive raid that up until now, authorities were tight lipped about. Turns out it was the Air Force Office of Special Investigations that led the raid.

"They went in there and did in fact find stolen air force military property that was stolen from Nellis Air Force Base," says Linda Card with the Air Force OSI....Metro lent a hand as well as the FBI, ATF, and ICE. The recovered material though would not have posed a danger to regular people, says the Air Force.

"It did not include weapons, guns, explosives of any kind, bombs, nothing like that. It was basic stolen military property," says Card.

Air Force OSI can go look in Pawn Shops "raid" them if you will if they know stolen military hardware is in there and they are led to said location in the course of an official investigation.

I believe the Air Force has no police powers off base in the US. However in reading the article, it sounds as if the Air Force merely went to these places to identify AF property while actual police agencies did the policing. As such, this was no different than the time I had to find the guy who burglarized my house, lead the SF police to him, and then identify my property while they arrested him.

Well I know for a fact they went into pawn shops right outside Plattsburgh AFB in 1992 to retrieve some PVS-7's (night vision goggles for the civilians) that some idiots had left in their Bradley Fighting Vehicles instead of keeping them in their poesession on a flight back to Ft. Benning.

OSI, NCIS and CID can investigate military related crimes on U.S. soil.
