ATF and Firearms Industry Offer $5,000 Reward in Firearms Theft

Seeking Public’s Help in Firearms Theft from a Business.

Brunswick, Md. – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, have announced a combined reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from R&R Guns and Ammo, a federal firearms licensee (FFL).

On Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, at approximately 5:45 a.m., at least two suspects burglarized R&R Guns and Ammo, located at 52 Souder Road, Brunswick, Md. Multiple handguns were stolen. 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. This crime is being investigated by the ATF and the Brunswick Police Department.

“The ATF, along with the Brunswick Police Department and our other law enforcement partners, are committed to ensuring that our communities are safe and that those who violate federal firearm laws are held accountable,” said Daniel L. Board, Jr., Special Agent in Charge for the ATF Baltimore Field Division.

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 is working closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition of firearms and is dedicated to assisting and protecting our industry partners, as well as the community, from those who seek to illegally obtain firearms,” said Board.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call the ATF 24/7 hotline at 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477) or send an email to Citizens can also send a text anonymously via the ReportIt® mobile app, available through, using the ATF Baltimore Field Division as the location.

ATF is the lead federal law enforcement agency with jurisdiction involving firearms and violent crimes, and regulates the firearm industry. More information about ATF and its programs is available at
