(Newser) – It may be some time before the police chief of Sebeka, Minn., lives down the loss of police equipment to what must have been America's best-protected backyard fort. Eric Swenson called law enforcement Friday to report that stun grenades, gas grenades, gas shotgun rounds, loaded magazines for both a handgun and an AR-15 rifle, a police radio, and a pair of night vision goggles had been stolen from his home, the Fergus Falls Journal reports. He called back three days later to report that he had found the items ... in a fort his kids had built.
