CAMP ATTERBURY -

Authorities are concerned about a device reportedly stolen from Camp Atterbury.

Military police at the training base say someone broke into a building over the weekend by shattering a window and completely removing a door.

Investigators discovered an MPT-30 Firebox, which they call a "sensitive item," missing. The box is used to remotely detonate roadside bombs and authorities say the device is dangerous in the wrong hands.

The FBI has been notified of the theft.
