ATF and Firearms Industry Offer $5,000 Reward in Reno Firearms Theft
RENO, Nev.– The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) -- the trade association for the firearms industry -- has announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from the RAC Guns & Ammo Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL).
ATF is offering a reward up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $5,000.
This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which the NSSF matches ATF rewards in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
On September 29, 2018, four suspects burglarized RAC Guns & Ammo, located at 3030 Mill Street, Reno, Nevada. The suspects used a sledgehammer to break the front glass of the
business and enter the premise. Using a duffle bag, they stole 69 firearms before fleeing the scene. ATF and the Reno Police Department are investigating the burglary.
Anyone with any information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-(800)-ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867) or visit www.reportit.com or through the mobile “reportit” app, available both on Google Play and the Apple App Store. All calls will remain confidential.
