The remaining soldiers on lockdown at Fort Drum were allowed to go home Thursday evening for the first time in almost a week.
Post officials had barred over 500 soldiers from leaving their offices on Friday evening when an inventory revealed a piece of Army equipment was missing.
The night vision device still hasn’t been found.
Military police will continue their investigation into exactly when the combat and training item disappeared. It’s worth between $2,000 and $3,000 dollars.
