Live Rocket Launcher Smuggled Off JBLM Launches Probe

Last year, the girlfriend of one of 5 Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldiers called police when she found a anti tank Rocket Launcher in her closet.

The soldiers are under investigation by ATF according to law enforcement officials cited by KING 5 TV on Tuesday.

The launcher is a M72 anti tank weapon armed with a live rocket and is capable of penetrating armor about one foot thick.  Apparently the soldiers didn’t plan on using it against anyone, they passed it around off base. The possession could lead to charges of possession of a military grade weapon to be filed in U.S. District Court.
