SURE--THEY'RE FOR WHEN THE RAIDERS

SURE–THEY’RE FOR WHEN THE RAIDERS PLAY THE BRONCOS:

Dozens of federal, state and local law enforcement agents searched a warehouse near Oakland International Airport Saturday for weapons including rocket launchers, officials said.

The exact nature of the raid, which began around 6 a.m. Friday and continued Saturday, was unclear because the federal search warrant was under seal.

But U.S. Magistrate Edward Chen told The San Francisco Chronicle: “The warrant was for a bunch of devices for rockets that could be launched from military vehicles and (for) some M-16s,” semiautomatic assault rifles used by the U.S. military.

Federal agents denied that the search was part of a counterterrorism operation.
