MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the National Shooting Sports Foundation are offering a $10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from American Jewelry and Pawn in Moultrie.

The ATF is offering $5,000 to be matched by the NSSF amount of $5,000.

Moultrie officials say four burglars broke into the pawn shop on September 23 and stole approximately $15,000 worth of merchandise.

Moultrie Police say the store lost 24 handguns and five assault rifles. The owners have since then released surveillance video of the suspects as they hope to bring them to justice.

The store's manager is already offering an additional $1,000 reward in the case.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF Special Agent J.B. Reed at 478-508-3684 or Investigator Raul Leal of the Moultrie Police Department at 229-890-5500. Callers may remain anonymous.
 
ATF is the lead federal law enforcement agency with jurisdiction in violent crimes involving firearms and regulation of the firearms industry.  More information on ATF can be found at www.atf.gov.
