The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports 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 Tom’s Guns and Ammo, a federally licensed firearms retailer in Sodus, New York. This potential reward matches a $5,000 reward offer by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
According to ATF, 62 firearms were stolen in a Nov. 24 burglary from the retail store located at 5403 Steel Road. ATF and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the theft and are seeking information from the public that would lead to the resolution of this investigation.
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 Rochester Field Office at 585-987-2100 or on 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.
