“Thirty is not a small amount of weapons in the firearm stolen include shotguns, rifles and handguns,” said Special Agent, Shawn Morrow with ATF Louisville Division. “We are very concerned about where those firearms end up. But oftentimes firearms that are stolen from gun stores are trafficked across state lines. They often make their ways into the hands of individuals who are not supposed to have them.”

ATF is offering a reward of up to $2,500 which will be matched by the NSSF for a total possible reward of up to $5,000.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-888-ATF-TIPS or the ATF Bowling Green, KY Field Office at (270) 393-4755. Information can also be sent to ATFTips@atf.gov or through ATF’s website at www.atf.gov/contact/atftips.
