HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects responsible for two burglaries at a Henrico gun shop within a 10-day span.

The burglaries occurred at the New American Arms gun shop at 4915 W. Broad Street, along the outskirts of Willow Lawn.

The first incident occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 19. Half a dozen guns were stolen, according to Crime Insider sources. Henrico Police only confirms several weapons were taken.

Ten days later, a second burglary was reported at the same gun store.

On January 29, officers responded to an alarm at the gun shop at approximately 5:01 a.m.

When officers arrived at the scene, they determined the front glass was broken out and firearms were taken from the store. Crime Insider sources confirm five rifle-style weapons were taken.

“Henrico County Police Division officers responded to each incident and have been working with Special Agents and Industry Operations Investigators from ATF Washington’s Richmond Field Office on this investigation,” said an ATF Washington Field Division spokesperson.

Investigators say several unidentified suspects were caught on camera during the second incident and fled the scene in a white sedan.

The ATF is offering a reward of up to $5,000, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $10,000.

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact investigators immediately. To provide tips to ATF, call 888-ATF-TIPS (888-283-8477) or send an email to ATFTips@atf.gov.
