That’s right, the Columbus Police Department somehow lost 160,000 5.56mm rounds which appear to have been stolen from the PD’s warehouse. Thirty rounds loaded into a Magpul magazine weighs close to a pound. A box of 20 rounds would weight just about 1/2 pound. Do the math and that’s a lot of weight and quite a large volume to store 160,000 rounds.
I mean just look for the cops with the nicest cars and houses right?
A bullet for every 10 residents. That’s not policing, it’s an occupying army.
What a mystery.
Good grief. Too many stories about police slacking off this week.
And 160,000 rounds — how many times are they planning to miss the suspects in a hail of over reactive gunfire?

Ohio Police probably had the same issue.
Lol, damn, that’s crazy. Though to put it in perspective the internet says there are 1,870 active duty police in Columbus OH. So that breaks down to 85.5 bullets per cop. A typical range visit to practice marksmanship (hopefully something police are doing), easily burns through 100+ rounds per person. So while 160k sounds like an insane amount of ammo, it’s literally less than one range trip per active cop in Columbus OH. Presumably the cops are going to the range more than once a year, so that’s actually a fairly low number. That said to have that much stolen from you is kind of lol
