CHESTER - A semi-automatic rifle owned by the state police and reported missing by them last month has now been found.
The troopers say a man returned the AR-15 to their station in the town of Chester on Tuesday.
He told them he just became aware it was state police property.
The rifle was in a carrying case that was last seen March 16 along Route 9 in the town of Chester.
Its disappearance is part of an internal investigation.
