Officials are investigating the theft of thousands of rounds of ammunition from a Crater Lake National Park storage building.
Park rangers noticed the rifle and pistol caliber ammunition was missing early Monday morning, park spokeswoman Jennifer Evans said. Investigators are offering up to $1,000 for tips that lead to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or people who stole the bullets.
Evans said the ammunition theft is a felony crime.
Investigators think the suspect, or suspects, entered through at least one locked door of a storage building near the park's headquarters and then took the ammunition from secured lockers.

Well, I think this had to have been federal employees, or others with keys, since no damage was referenced in the article: damage that would have been caused if someone "broke" into the building and took the ammo.
Then again, poor accounting of expended training rounds may be the culprit here, yhrough either error or intent.
The real question? Why do a handful of rangers need "thousands of rounds" of ammo?
