MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is offering a reward for information leading to an arrest after a theft from a gun range.



On July 1, at least 43 guns were reported stolen from Range USA on Whitten Road. Investigators are still checking to see if any more guns were taken.

ATF is offering a $2,500 reward that will be matched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation for a total of $5,000 for the arrest of the burglar(s).

If you know anything about who may have taken these firearms, call ATF at 800-ATF-GUNS or MPD at 901-528-CASH.

Jessica Holley is looking deeper into this crime. She’ll have a full report tonight on WMC Action News 5 at 5 p.m.

I have not seen until now. That stinks because they are a good place to do consignments so there are usually some nice collector type pieces there at any given time.
Also a SOT for class 3 transfers so I hope nothing that has been sitting there in "jail" for anyone got nabbed.


Straight shootin!

I'll see you your 43 firearms, and raise you 90 lbs of stolen ammonium nitrate blasting agent for that $5000 offered by the ATF. This happened last month, and is just now being reported. I guess someone wanted to have a memorable 4th of July.

Can't they just check the paperwork on the background checks? The left is always telling us that they will stop criminals from getting guns.

I fear that they didn't have time to fill out the proper forms during their heist.

Memphis cops zapped thieves who were stealing guns and electricity, according to a report.

The bust last week recovered 27 stolen guns at a home, including a rifle that belonged to a local sheriff’s office, Fox 13 Memphis reports.

Workers from the Memphis utility company suspected the homeowners were stealing electricity, the station reported. They spotted an extension cord stretching to the home from another residence.

When the workers showed up at the house, they saw several guns and called police.

The cops showed up with a search warrant, the station reported.

The stolen guns included semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and handguns.

Officers interviewed the home’s eight occupants, the station reported. None knew how the guns got there.

The rifle stolen from the Chester County Sheriff’s Office in Henderson was found in a car parked in the driveway of the home.

Two women and two men were arrested in connection with the stolen guns, the station reported.

Wouldn't Rotarians steal the revolvers but leave everything else?

I would like to apologize to anyone I have *not* offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.
