According to The Outdoor Wire, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) will match the $2,500 reward offered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for any information leading to the arrest of those responsible for a Pennsylvania gun theft.
Back on the 13th of June, a total of 26 handguns were stolen from Rogers Sporting Goods Store on Route 8 in Union Township, Pennsylvania. Authorities and the ATF are investigating, but the case is still open.
They’re hoping that $2,500 in reward money might elp lead them to the culprits. And if that wasn’t tempting enough, the NSSF is upping that reward to $5,000 for anybody who will point the finger.
The president of the NSSF, Steve Sanette, said, “Our matching reward offer will hopefully help assist ATF and local law enforcement in solving this crime against a federally licensed firearms dealer and lead to the swift recovery of stolen firearms before they can enter the illegal underground black market where they can be misused to commit violent crimes.”
If any readers out there happen to have clues, there’s no better time than now to sell out some cold, hard criminals for some cold, hard cash. You can give anonymous, confidential information through the ATF hotline: 1-800-ATF-GUNS.
