Energy Dept. Report Says Ammo Being Carried into Secure Areas Undeclared

Oak Ridge, Anderson County (WVLT) - A new report says 3,400 rounds of ammunition were brought into Oak Ridge in 2005 without proper authorization.

The report issued by the Department of Energy's Office of the Inspector General says federal agents got the ammunition from a training operation on a new rifle in Texas in December of 2005.

The report says agents transported the ammunition on a National Nuclear Security Administration plane without declaring it.

The NNSA says they are taking corrective action to make sure this doesn't happen again.
