"Heist of 31 guns from Compton city vault is the latest problem in a scandal-plagued city"


The guns were kept in a 1920s-era vault in a municipal building on North Alameda.

Compton officials struggled for months to say where they came from, and now where a load of them have gone.


Now Rhambo, the Sheriff's Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are asking: Who stole 31 of them?


The mystery of the missing guns is the second troubling revelation to hit city leaders this month.
