ATF is offering a reward of up to $5,000, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total possible reward of $10,000.
At approximately 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016, two individuals broke into the business, located at 2851 South Madison Avenue, by ramming a stolen vehicle through the side of the building.
These individuals then stole approximately 17 handguns and two long guns. ATF is working with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department to investigate the incident.
