ATF Offers Reward in Gun Store Burglary

ATF, St. George Police, and the Firearms Industry Seek Public’s Help in Firearms Theft From Dixie Gun & Fish

ST. GEORGE, Utah — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, in conjunction with the St. George Police Department and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from Dixie Gun & Fish, a federal firearms licensee.

Dixie Gun & Fish FFL, located at 1090 Tabernacle Street, Unit B, in St. George, was burglarized on Friday, March 4, at 4:48 a.m., with the St. George Police Department responding to the initial report. ATF Industry Operations Investigators have also responded to the FFL and are conducting an inventory to determine the exact number of firearms stolen.

ATF is offering a reward of up to $5,000, which will be matched by NSSF for a total reward of up to $10,000. This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between ATF and NSSF in which NSSF matches ATF’s reward in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed firearms retailers.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at (888) ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477) or the St. George Police Department at (435) 627-4300. 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, available from both Google Play and the Apple App store, or by visiting www.reportit.com.
