ATF, Firearms Industry Offer Reward in Indianapolis Gun Store Robbery
INDIANAPOLIS — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) – the trade association for the firearms industry – are announcing a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for the robbery of Cash America, located at 3557 Lafayette Rd., Indianapolis. ATF is offering a reward of up to $5,000, which the NSSF will match, resulting in a potential award of up to $10,000.
On July 2, 2019, at approximately 1 p.m., four suspects entered Cash America. The suspects, three of whom were armed, held the occupants of the store at gunpoint and took seven handguns, jewelry, cash, a video game console, and personal belongings from customers before leaving the scene.
ATF is investigating this case jointly with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (800-283-4867). Information can also be sent to ATFTips@atf.gov, or through ATF’s website at www.atf.gov/contact/atftips. Tips can be submitted anonymously using the Reportit® app or by visiting www.reportit.com.
This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which 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.
