(Before It's News)


BOUNTIFUL, UTAH – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Bountiful Police Department are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects responsible for burglarizing a pawn shop in Bountiful, Utah.
At about 3:30 a.m., Oct. 11, at least two suspects broke into Pawn Depot at 613 S. 500 W. in Bountiful and stole more than two dozen handguns.
“Recovering these stolen firearms is a top investigative priority for ATF,” said ATF Denver Field Division Special Agent in Charge Ken Croke. “We are appealing to the public to provide any information they have about this burglary. Our goal is to quickly apprehend those responsible and recover the stolen firearms before they end up in future crimes.”
“It is a threat to the safety of our community, and we are asking the public to assist our investigators by contacting Bountiful Police Department with any information about this crime,” said Bountiful Police Department Public Information Officer Lt. Dave Edwards. 
Stealing firearms from a federally licensed dealer and possessing stolen firearms are federal crimes punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Anyone with any information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-800- ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867) or Bountiful Police Department at 801-298-6000. People can also submit a tip through ATF’s new “reportit” app available at www.reportit.com (link is external) and at Google Play and the Apple App Store. All tips are confidential and can be anonymous.
