James Walter Morales, 34, has been charged by the U.S. attorney’s office in Massachusetts with taking six M4 rifles and 10 Sig Sauer M11 9-mm. pistols from the Army reserve armory vault in Worcester on Nov. 14. Investigators later tracked down the suspect, 34-year-old Bronx man and Army reservist James Walker Morales, in Long Island and charged with the theft after his DNA was gleaned from the armory, CBS reported.
