NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, has offered a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the theft of firearms from Wild John’s Gun Store/Party Store, a federally licensed firearms retailer in Cass City, Mich.

This reward offer matches a $5,000 reward offer by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

According to ATF, 36 handguns, 9 long guns, ammunition and cash were stolen some time between 10 p.m. on August 14 and 4 a.m. on August 15 from the retail store located at 6348 N. Van Dyke Road. ATF and the Sanilac County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the theft and are seeking information from the public that would lead to the resolution of this investigation.

Steve Sanetti, president of the NSSF, said, “Our matching reward offer we hope will assist ATF and local law enforcement in solving this crime against a federally licensed firearms dealer and lead to the swift recovery of stolen firearms before they can enter the illegal underground black market where they can be misused to commit violent crimes.”

The matching reward payment by NSSF will be granted only following payment of the initial ATF reward, which is up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the crime.

Any information regarding this burglary should be reported by calling the ATF hotline: 1-800-ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867)

The ATF hotline is toll-free, and all information will be treated confidentially. Callers will remain anonymous upon request.

For any questions about the theft of these firearms, please contact ATF at one of the numbers listed above.
