ATF Offers $5,000 Reward in Get N’ Go Armed Robbery
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), in conjunction with the Sioux Falls Police Department, announced a reward today of up to $5,000 for information related to an armed robbery at a Sioux Falls convenience store around 2 a.m. last Wednesday, May 6.
The robbery occurred at the Get N’ Go convenience store and gas station located at 611 South Cliff Ave., where a fully-masked individual entered the premises demanding that the store clerk hand over cash from the register and cigarettes.
“We’re hoping the additional reward money will help convince those who may know the suspect to come forward with information,” said ATF Special Agent in Charge William Henderson, of the St. Paul Field Division. “ATF is committed to partnering with the Sioux Falls Police Department to pursue criminals who use firearms in the commission of crimes. There is no place in our community for this type of threat.”
The $5,000 reward is in addition to a $1,500 reward issued by the Get N’ Go franchise. When reporting information, include as many details as possible as well as contact information if seeking a reward. Information eligible for reward must lead to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the robbery.
