ATF and Firearms Industry Offers $15,000 Reward in Firearms Theft
MIAMI – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Miami Field Division and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) -- the trade association for the firearms industry – have announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from the Airport Pawn & Gun Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL).
ATF is offering a reward up to $10,000, which will be matched by the NSSF up to $5,000 for a total reward of $15,000.
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.
The suspects burglarized the shop at approximately 1:30 a.m., June 1. A total of eight suspects entered the premises, located at 831 NW 42nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33126, removed 31 handguns from the store and fled the scene.
