A: Eight suspects have been arrested in various locations in Greater Atlanta in connection with the theft of 120 rifles from a CSX rail yard in November, company spokesman Gary Sease told Q&A on the News. He said some weapons also have been recovered. Sease said CSX security, which he said is a fully accredited police force, is working with ATF and the FBI in the investigation. "The investigation continues, and we're making additional progress," Sease said. He said he could not disclose who owned the guns that were taken from a shipping container in Atlanta. Sease said theft, especially in large urban areas, "tends to be a challenge for us. We conduct frequent patrols of the tracks in cities like Atlanta and Chicago. Theft tends to be more prevalent there," he said. "Places like those are where our efforts are focused."
