LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A military Humvee combat vehicle was stolen from a National Guard Armory in the city of Bell in Southern California early Friday morning, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The Humvee was 'up-armored,' which means it had been upgraded and is considered a combat vehicle.

The theft of the $120,000 Humvee is being investigated by the FBI's Major Theft Task Force in Los Angeles, which includes FBI agents and Task Force officers with the Los Angeles Police Department. Also assisting are the Bell Police Department, the California Highway Patrol (CHP), and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The California Army National Guard is supporting the investigation.

A theft from a military facility, which is government property, is a violation of federal law and carries a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison.

The FBI has offered a reward of $10,000 for information leading to the recovery of the vehicle.

The Humvee has four doors and is painted with green camouflage. The bumper number is #40BSBHQ6. The administrative number is #WV57TO-HQ06/M1165A1. The registration number is NZ311R. The Battalion number, '40TH BSB,' can also be seen on the vehicle.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the vehicle or the person or group responsible for the theft is urged to call the FBI's Los Angeles Field Office at (310) 477-6565.
