ATF, Firearm Foundation Offers up to $5,000 Reward in Federal Way Firearms Theft
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from Federal Way Indoor Range LLC, a federal firearms licensee located in Federal Way, Wash, on Jan. 28, 2017.
ATF is offering a reward of up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total possible reward of up to $5,000.
Four masked burglars broke into Federal Way Indoor Range LLC at 1401 S 324th St., early on Saturday, Jan. 28, stealing 31 firearms. They were recorded on the store’s security cameras but could not be identified because of their masks.
Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-800-ATFGUNS (800-283-4867), email ATFTips@atf.gov, or contact ATF through its website at www.atf.gov/contact/atftips. Tips may also be submitted to ATF using the ReportIt® app, available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store, or by visiting www.reportit.com. All calls and tips will be kept confidential.
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 retailers. ATF works closely with the members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
