In July, an FBI vehicle containing firearms and tactical gear was stolen when it was left running in the 300 block of South Morgan Street.

The SUV, a white 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, was stolen around 1 a.m. July 3 when an FBI employee left it for a moment with the engine on, Chicago Police said at the time. A boy got into the car and drove away.

A juvenile was charged with the crime over the summer, but a Cook County judge found him not guilty, the source said.
