FORT DRUM — Members of an aviation company have been confined to their work area all week amid a search for approximately $50,000 worth of missing equipment.

The Headquarters and Headquarters Company of the 277th Aviation Support Battalion, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, with 50 to 100 soldiers, has been on lockdown since Monday, when the items were reported missing.

Maj. Josh T. Jacques, deputy spokesman for the 10th Mountain Division, said the soldiers may leave their area when the missing property is located or all search measures are exhausted. Though he did not identify the missing inventory, Maj. Jacques said it does not include firearms, ordnance or aviation components, and poses no threat to the general public.
