The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in conjunction with the Mt. Juliet Police Department and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from KRB Firearms II, a federal firearms licensee (FFL).
On Wednesday, June 14, KRB Firearms II, located at 1730 Mt. Juliet Road, was burglarized, and approximately 16 handguns were reported stolen to the MJPD. ATF industry operations investigators are in the process of conducting an inventory to determine the exact number of firearms stolen.
ATF is offering the reward in the amount of up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $5,000. This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which NSSF matches ATF's reward in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearm industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
Anyone with information about this crime should contact the ATF at (800) 283-4867, the MJPD tip line at (615) 754-8477 or online at www.mjpd.org to submit tips anonymously. Information can also be sent to ATF via the mobile app www.reportit.com by using the Nashville field division as the location.
