Army weapon found in Pierce County home

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD -- Joint Base Lewis-McChord says an anti-tank weapon that was found at a home in Pierce County is not from the Army base.
Spokesman Gary Dangerfield said Wednesday the base checked its inventory of M72 weapons for the past five years and none are missing.
The statement came in response to a report on KING-TV that linked the weapon to JBLM soldiers.
KING 5 News reported that five soldiers are under investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The weapon was found last September by a woman who told the sheriff's office it had been left in a garage by one or more soldiers living at the home.
ATF spokeswoman Cheryl Bishop in Seattle said the results of its investigation will be turned over to federal prosecutors.
