(Newser) – Federal agents are hunting for more than 100 rifles stolen from a boxcar parked in an Atlanta train yard. The US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives said today the weapons were taken from a CSX rail yard in the city about two weeks ago. The weapons include assault rifles that an ATF spokesperson described as "AK-style." A CSX rep says the company is cooperating with law enforcement to recover the weapons and investigate the theft, which occurred on or around Nov. 12.
