SIOUX FALL, S.D. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), in conjunction with the Sioux Falls Police Department, announce a reward today of up to $5,000 for information related to an armed robbery at a Sioux Falls convenience store last Thursday.
At approximately 3:45 a.m., Feb. 13, at a Get N Go convenience store near the intersection of West 57th Street and South Marion, an unidentified man used a firearm to intimidate an employee and rob the store. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene.
Surveillance footage captured the suspect. According to reports, the suspect was described as a black man, about five feet and nine inches tall with an athletic build. (Please see attached photos, video available by request).
Those with information can call 1-800-ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867) or email ATFTips@atf.gov. Tipsters can also send information to ATF anonymously via the mobile Reportit app, which is available on Google Play, the Apple App Store, or by visiting www.reportit.com.
When reporting, include as many details as possible and contact information if seeking a reward. To receive a reward, tips must aid in the investigation, arrest and successful prosecution of those responsible.
This is the second reward ATF has offered in the Sioux Falls area today. ATF issued the first reward announcement in relation to a Super 8 Motel robbery on Feb. 16. ATF and Sioux Fall Police believe these two robberies to separate and unrelated to each other.
