Louisville, Ky. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Louisville Field Division today announced a reward offered for information leading to the identification of an individual last seen driving a white Ford truck on Cairo Road in Paducah, Kentucky on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
ATF is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the driver’s identification.
At approximately 2:00PM, a delivery driver with UPS made a scheduled pick up for shipment at Paducah Shooter’s Supply. Among the items picked up for shipment were two firearms. The driver inadvertently placed packages on the rear bumper of the truck and drove off with the packages on the rear bumper. The two packages contained firearms intended to be shipped as part of lawful commerce to other Federal Firearms Licensees. As the driver exited the parking lot onto Cairo Road, the packages fell off the bumper onto Cairo Road. A brief time later, a white Ford truck pulled into the parking lot, and a white male exited the truck and picked up the packages. The male placed the two packages containing firearms in the truck, and drove away. The male was captured on the store’s video surveillance and images are attached to this release. McCracken County Sheriff’s Deputies and agents with ATF responded to the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
