ATF Offers Reward For Information On Gun Store Robbery
"We all have a vested interest in arresting those responsible for this crime," said Gant. "We know that in many instances, stolen firearms end up in the hands of violent criminals, who use them to commit additional crimes. Gun thieves play a critical and deadly role in the chain of violence."
The armed robbery occurred around 12:30 p.m., Thursday, at the business located at 11230 Highway 36, Covington, Georgia. The suspects entered the business at gunpoint and assaulted a female clerk. The robbers then smashed glass display cases and removed over 25 firearms. The assailants could only be identified as three males, wearing masks and gloves.
Investigators are seeking the public's help with identifying the subjects involved and providing information on the location of any or all of the stolen firearms. Anyone with information is encouraged to callATF's toll-free, 24-hour hotline at 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477)
