Authorities are investigating the theft of two weapons and uniforms taken from an unmarked New Jersey State Police troop vehicle.

The white, unmarked Chevrolet Tahoe was stolen sometime Saturday evening or early Sunday morning in the North Brunswick area, the New Jersey State Police posted on its Facebook page.

The vehicle was recovered late Sunday morning in North Brunswick, the news release says.

“The stolen uniforms and weapons may have been used during the commission of at least one armed robbery in Middlesex County earlier (Sunday) morning,” according to the release.

The agency says the investigation is active and that troopers are working closely with local law enforcement.

“Anyone concerned or suspicious about the validity of an officer’s identification should call 9-1-1 to report this information and seek confirmation of the officers credentials,” the release said.

No additional information, including the types of weapons stolen, was provided as of Sunday afternoon.
