Feds say Minnesota man stole guns, ammo from shipping facility
ST. PAUL, Minn. – A man is accused of stealing numerous boxes of guns and ammunition while working at a national shipping company in Minnesota.
Jason Cikotte, of Isanti, Minnesota, is charged in federal court with possession of stolen firearms. Authorities said the thefts occurred over the course of almost a year at the XPO Logistics facility in Fridley, north of Minneapolis.
The 31-year-old Cikotte appeared in court last week and was released on his promise to appear at future proceedings. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Friday.
Authorities said a search of Cikotte’s house turned up about 40 guns, tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition and firearm parts and accessories.
