RICHMOND, Va. – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, have announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from Ole Town Silver Exchange, a federal firearm licensee (FFL), in in Lakeside area of Henrico County, Virginia. ATF is offering a reward of up to $2,500 which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $5,000.
During the early morning hours of Jan. 5, 2017, 14 firearms were stolen during a burglary at Ole Town Silver Exchange located at 5601 Lakeside Avenue. These firearms may pose a risk to public safety and investigators are seeking information that would aid in the resolution of this investigation.     
ATF and our law enforcement partners are committed to ensuring that our communities are safe and that those who violate federal laws are held accountable. Anyone with information about this crime should contact the ATF at (800) ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867) or [email protected] (link sends e-mail). All calls will be kept confidential.

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 firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
