An assault rifle was stolen from an unmarked San Francisco police  car over the weekend, police said on Monday.

The car was parked and locked while officers worked in the area  when unknown suspects broke in and stole the AR-15 rifle, Sgt. Michael  Andraychak said.

The AR-15 is a type of rifle issued to specially trained officers  so that they are available for rapid deployment during incidents such as a  barricaded suspect, Andraychak said.

The department has issued a teletype to alert law enforcement  agencies, and an investigation is underway.

Andraychak said that "no resource is being spared to recover this  weapon."

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (415) 553-1373  or the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 and  start the message with SFPD.
