About 100 U.S. Army soldiers are confined
to a Washington state base after authorities discovered that
optics equipment is missing, a base spokesman said on Sunday.
The infantry unit at Joint Base Lewis-McChord was placed on
lockdown Wednesday after the equipment was discovered missing
from a supply area, said Major Chris Ophardt, a spokesman for
the U.S. Army’s I Corps at the base. The equipment included
weapon sights and targeting lasers.
