Royalton Ohio Gun Shop Burglarized Seven Guns Were Stolen $10,000 Reward Offered

Ohio — Suspects accused of stealing seven long guns from a business in North Royalton last month.The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward of up to $5,000. That will be matched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation for a total possible reward of $10,000.

According to a release from the ATF, several individuals burglarized Accurate Arms and Armor on Bunker Road early in the morning on Dec. 27. As many as four suspects used a sledge-hammer to smash their way into the store and grab whatever they could before making their getaway in a car that was parked in a strip mall.

They got away with seven rifles. Investigators are concerned about what they plan to do with the guns. Investigators said the crime has some telltale signs of a crime of desperation and that’s an added reason for concern. Anyone with information about the crime should call ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS, email [email protected] or contact ATF through its website by clicking here. Tips can also be submitted to ATF using the ReportIt app. All calls and tips will be kept confidential.
