DETROIT — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is hoping the public can help identify a suspect responsible for the burglary and theft of multiple firearms and firearm silencers from Schupbach’s Sporting Goods store located at 141. W. Pearl Street, Jackson, Mich.
The burglary happened May 8, 2013. The unknown individual entered Schupbach’s Sporting Goods around 4:30 p.m. and concealed himself inside the business. After the store closed, the male suspect came out of hiding and stole two firearms and 15 firearm silencers. To date, none of the stolen items have been recovered.
