Click2Houston reports a that a rocket launcher was discovered in a Houston apartment by police responding to a disturbance call. A woman called police on Monday and said a man was forcing his way into her apartment. When officers went inside, they found something that made them concerned enough to call the bomb squad.
The police found an AT-4 shoulder-mounted rocket launcher, which is capable of shooting a missile almost 1,000 feet through tanks and buildings. Oscar Saldivar of Top Brass Military and Tactical said that it grants infantrymen the benefit with a light-weight weapon that can easily stop armored vehicles along with primary battle tanks and fortifications.
The woman told the police that the rocket launcher was owned by Nabilaye I. Yansane, a man whom she had permitted to keep items at her home. Yansane has been arrested for criminal trespassing, and was jailed for three days.
