LEXINGTON, Missouri — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, announced a reward today for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from Pat’s Army and Sporting Goods, a federal firearms licensee located in Lexington.
ATF is offering a reward of up to $5,000, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total possible reward of up to $10,000.
