ATF Offers Reward in Gun Store Burglary

ATF, Cascade County Sheriff’s Office, Great Falls Police Department and the Firearms Industry Seek Public’s Help in Firearms Theft from North 40 Outfitters FFL

BATFE LogoThe Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), in conjunction with the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office, the Great Falls Police Department, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, have announced a reward for information that leads to the recovery of the stolen firearms, arrest, and conviction for those responsible for the theft of firearms from North 40 Outfitters, a federal firearm licensee (FFL).

On November 30, 2019, North 40 Outfitters, 4400 10th Ave S, Great Falls, MT., was burglarized where approximately 28 firearms were reported stolen. ATF Industry Operations Investigators responded to the FFL to conduct an inventory to determine the exact number of firearms stolen.

ATF is offering the reward for the amount of up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total possible 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 firearm retailers.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at (888) ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477), the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office (406-454-6820), or the Great Falls Police Department (406-727-7688).

Information can also be sent to ATFTips@atf.gov, through ATF’s website at www.atf.gov/contact/atftips. Tips can be submitted anonymously using the Reportit app, available from both Google Play and the Apple App store, or by visiting www.reportit.com.

ATF is the lead federal law enforcement agency with jurisdiction involving firearms and violent crimes, and regulates the firearm industry. More information about ATF and its programs is available at www.atf.gov.
