ATF Offers Reward In Gun Store Burglary



ATF and Firearms Industry Offer Reward in Pleasant Grove Firearms Theft

PLEASANT GROVE, Ala. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in conjunction with the Pleasant Grove Police Department and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) — the trade association for the firearms industry announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from Pleasant Grove Gun Supply, a federal firearm licensee (FFL). ATF is offering a reward in the amount of $1,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of $3,000. This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which NSSF matches ATF reward in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.

On Dec. 3, 2013, the Pleasant Grove Gun Supply, 839 Park Drive, Pleasant Grove, Ala. was burglarized and a total of seven firearms were reported stolen to the Pleasant Grove Police Department.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the ATF at (800) ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867).
