KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the recent shooting deaths of two bald eagles in northwest Missouri.

The department says a reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction in the case. It's a state and federal offense to shoot a bald eagle.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Social Security Administration says one of its fraud investigators received a readable list of Missourians who have concealed-weapons permits but that the list was later destroyed.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Friday that the agent received the list in a readable format from the Missouri State Highway Patrol in January.
Patrol officials told a Missouri Senate committee Thursday the data were never accessed at the federal level because of a technical glitch. But the Social Security Administration's Office of Inspector General told The Post-Dispatch the unreadable version was sent to the agent in 2011.
The investigator was planning to check if anyone who met Missouri's mental health qualifications for a weapons permit had also sought benefits for a mental disability. But the project was dropped.
One Boeing employee faces charges after authorities found meth-making materials in one of the company's buildings yesterday.
Prosecuting Attorneys say Dennis Banker admitted to police that he not only put the materials in another employee's office, but left a note saying another employee was the one who brought the chemicals into the office. Authorities were alerted to the situation when a fire alarm tripped early Thursday morning.
A check of security cameras showed, Banker entered the building minutes before the alarm.
