The FBI is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of a sub-machine gun stolen from an agent’s car in Central Costa County last month, a spokesman said Thursday in a statement.

The weapon, an H&L 10mm MP-5, was stolen sometime between 6 p.m. Jan. 8 and 10 a.m. Jan. 9, as the agent made stops in Concord, Lafayette, and Orinda. Both the FBI and the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department, which is assisting in the investigation, have refused to say where the car was parked in any of the three cities or describe the vehicle.
