ATF, NSSF Offers Up to $10,000 Reward on McAlester Tactical Supply Burglary
Tulsa — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) have announced a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification and/or arrest of the suspect responsible for the theft of firearms and arson from Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL), McAlester Tactical Supply, located at 601 North Main Street, McAlester, Texas.
On Friday, July 29, 2022, in the early morning, one unidentified suspect gained access to the rear side of the premises by destroying multiple layers of the buildings outside structure. Surveillance video shows that once inside the property the masked suspect gathers firearms from a glass display case and proceeds to carry them out in a bag. It is unknown at this time if the suspect drove to the location, received a ride, or was on foot. The investigation continues.
A copy of the video surveillance was emailed with the Reward Notice.
“Recovering these firearms quickly before additional crimes are committed remains a top priority for ATF. We are asking the public to please let authorities know if you recognize this individual,” said ATF Dallas Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey C Boshek II.
Anyone with any information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-888-ATF- TIPS. Information can also be sent to ATFTips@atf.gov, through ATF’s website at www.atf.gov/contact/atftips.
The 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 firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
ATF is the lead federal law enforcement agency with jurisdiction involving firearms and violent crimes and regulates the firearm industry. More information about ATF and its programs is available at www.atf.gov.
