GREENWOOD — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the National Shooting Sports Foundation are offering a reward for information leading to an arrest of the suspects responsible for stealing multiple guns from a Greenwood gun store.

The thefts occurred around 9 p.m. on November 12. The ATF says an undetermined number of suspects forced their way into Atkinson Firearms and stole nine firearms before leaving the scene. The photos above and below show the suspects in the case.

The ATF is investigating the thefts jointly with the Greenwood Police Department.

Anyone with information about the crime should contact the ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS. Information can also be sent to ATFTips@atf.gov or through the ATF's website at 111.atf.ogv/contact/atftips.

This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which NSSF matches ATF rewards in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed retailers. ATF works closely with the members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
