MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Murfreesboro police are trying to figure out who might have stolen a high-powered rifle from the National Guard.

Tuesday, a Sergeant with the National Guard filed a report with Murfreesboro police reporting a missing Colt Defense M4 Carbine rifle.  

Authorities are incredibly concerned that weapon might be out on the streets.  

"In this case it's something a little bit more because it's a rifle, it's stolen from the military so it's military use and in the wrong hands it could be very dangerous," said Murfreesboro Police Spokesman Kyle Evans.

The serial number from the M4 is now in a national database so that if anyone tries to buy or sell it officials will be alerted.  

Authorities admit it's still a possibility that the rifle could be just missing, not stolen but say it's hard to lose a gun such as a M4.  

If the armory is the victim of a crime it would be one of the first time it has happened.
