Reports of gun thefts in San Antonio taper off after recent spike Reports of gun thefts in San Antonio are starting to slow after a sudden spike in recent years, and local officials aren’t quite sure why. Between 2011 and 2015, San Antonio police received about 2,000 reports of stolen firearms each year, according to police data. Then in 2016, without warning, that number jumped — by roughly 47 percent — to more than 2,800. That same year, homicides jumped to 149, compared to 94 the year before. The number of burglaries, robberies and assaults also surged. On average, police received at least seven reports of stolen weapons each day in 2016. Multiple gun stores reported thefts.

The missile was seized from a hangar at the Rivanazzano Terme airport in Pavese. Other illegal materials, including two rocket launcher containers, were found alongside the Matra.

Three people were also arrested, including a former customs anti-fraud inspector. Fabio Del Bergiolo, 50, had previously run for a Senate seat for the far-right group Forza Nuova—meaning "new force"—in 2001. Police said Del Bergiolo was suspected of trying to sell the Matra missile for around $530,000 to an official working for a foreign nation.
