The video shows a man carefully stealing weapon after weapon from the Lincoln Stoddard Army Reserve Center. Sources tell WBZ-TV the theft started around 6 p.m. Saturday and lasted about five hours.

The suspect entered through the roof and was not detected because the alarm was disabled at the armory due to construction.

A total of six assault rifles and ten 9mm handguns were stolen.

Police are looking for a light-skinned man between 5'7"-5'10" tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a white t-shirt and a dark colored vest.

Also caught on surveillance was the man's car, which appears to be a newer model, dark colored BMW hatchback with sport rims.

The FBI says there is no link to terrorism and no public threat.

Out of precaution, Worcester City Manager Edward Augustus said there will be an additional police presence in parts of the city until further notice.

Anyone with information on the incident can send an anonymous text to 274637 TIPWPD + your message, or online. Tips can also be called in to the Worcester Police Department at (508) 799-8651.
