ATF Offers Reward in Gun Store Burglary

ATF, Clarksville Police Department and the firearms industry seek the public’s help in firearms theft from The Tactical Edge

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in conjunction with the Clarksville Police Department and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction for those responsible for the theft of firearms from The Tactical Edge, a federal firearm licensee (FFL).

On June 9, 2017, The Tactical Edge, 1925 Ft. Campbell Blvd., Clarksville, was burglarized and approximately 45 firearms were reported stolen to the Clarksville Police Department.
