ROCHESTER, Minn.- Police tell KIMT that a resident reported their assault rifle missing from a home on the 100 block of 11 1/2 street southeast.
Residents of this south eastern neighborhood are concerned after Rochester police say a loaded AK-47 went missing from a garage.
Neighbors say the area isn't what it used to be but its generally a quiet area.
Tony Griffin lives in the neighborhood and is shocked that someone owned a weapon like that.
He says there have been a series of robberies in the area but hearing this is most concerning.
“With that gun being missing like that, hey need to be on that like non-stop,” said Griffin.
