Michael Bliemsrieder reports that the bodega that may have been broken into contains the Parks' weapons.

There are 8 carbines, mostly 22 long rifle. About half are semi-automatic, and half are single shot. There are several thousand rounds of ammunition.

Michael reports that he has told the (Ecuadorian) Marines, but has not seen them take any action.

The weapons are stored in a locked case, but he says the case could be unscrewed easily.
