INDIANAPOLIS — -(Ammoland.com)- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) – the trade association for the firearms industry – are announcing a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the burglary of Elmore’s Firearms, located at 250 N. State Route 135, Greenwood, Indiana.

ATF is offering a reward of up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total possible reward of $5,000.

At approximately 2:45 a.m. on Nov. 15, 2017, an unknown individual or individuals forcibly gained entry into the building, taking seven handguns and two long guns. ATF is working with the Greenwood Police Department to investigate the incident.

Anyone having information about this burglary should contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (800-283-4867). Individuals may also email ATFTips@atf.gov (link sends e-mail), or contact ATF through its website at www.atf.gov/contact/atf-tips. Tips may also be submitted to ATF using the ReportIt® app, available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store, or by visiting www.reportit.com. (link is external) Tipsters may remain anonymous.

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.

From Fox 59 News:

The Greenwood Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are investigating a smash-and-grab burglary that happened at Elmore’s Firearms over the weekend.

The thieves got away with three rifles worth more than $6,000 and caused more than $40,000 worth of damage to the building and other merchandise, according to owner Russ Elmore.

“When are they going to leave me alone?” Elmore asked. “It’s not the merchandise. It’s the personal violation of my place.”

This is the third time Elmore’s store has been hit in the last 20 years. This time suspects used a stolen red pick up truck to ram into his building Sunday morning just after 6:00 a.m., according to Greenwood Police Department Assistant Chief Mathew Fillenwarth.

A bystander at nearby gas station called the crime in immediately after he heard the crash. Greenwood Police arrived on scene within two minutes, but the thieves were already gone.

“Fast in. Fast out,” Elmore said about thieves using the smash and grab technique to rob gun stores. “Time is their enemy. They don’t want to spend any more time in the place than they have to.”The Greenwood Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are investigating a smash-and-grab burglary that happened at Elmore’s Firearms over the weekend.
