ATF, Firearms Industry Offer Reward of Up to $5,000 for Information in the Millbrook Country Store Firearms Burglary

Farmville, Va. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) 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 burglary of Millbrook Country Store, a federal firearms licensee (FFL) in Farmville, Va.  ATF and the NSSF are each offering a reward of up to $2,500, for a total reward of $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

On Dec. 1, 2018, at approximately 1:35 a.m., three unidentified suspects broke into the Millbrook Country Store, a federal firearms licensee (FFL), located at 3633 James Madison Hwy., Farmville, VA, and stole 17 handguns.  ATF is working with the Buckingham County Sheriff’s Office on this investigation.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (800-283-4867), email ATFTips@atf.gov or contact ATF through it’s website at www.atf.gov/contact/atf-tips.  Tips may also be submitted to ATF by using the ReportIt app, or by visiting www.reportit.com.  You may also provide information by contacting the Buckingham County Sheriff’s Office tipline at 434-969-1772.  All calls and tips will be kept confidential.

ATF, along with its law enforcement partners, are committed to ensuring that our communities are safe, and that those that commit violent crimes such as these will be held accountable.  The 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 FFL retailers.  ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
