One hundred U.S.-made pistols were stolen from a Colombian police warehouse and officials are offering a reward for information that would solve the crime, a police spokesman said.

The theft was discovered when authorities were examining several crates of the pistols that had arrived from the United States, National Police Gen. Gabriel Parada told reporters.

The police commander did not specify the date on which the theft occurred at the police warehouse in southern Bogota.

The pistols were for the National Police, which is offering a reward of up to 20 million pesos (about $10,500) for information leading to the resolution of the crime and the capture of those responsible. EFE
