Ulster gun stores robbed; reward offered for info

Two angles for the two individuals police are looking for

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) have offered a combined reward of up to $2,500 (up to $1,250 from each) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the burglary of firearms from each federally licensed dealer.

There were two incidents:

  • On February 23 at about 1:30 a.m., two unknown individuals forcibly entered Ruger’s Custom Guns Inc., located at 1050 Morton Blvd. in the town of Ulster, and removed a long gun.
  • On February 27 at about 5 a.m, two unknown individuals forcibly entered SafeShoot LLC, located at 10 Kieffer Lane in the Town of Ulster, and removed two handguns and ammunition. Surveillance photos from the time of the incident are above. The same individuals may be connected to the burglary of a residence in the city of Kingston on February 22 where additional firearms were stolen.

The Ulster Police Department and Kingston Police Department are working in conjunction with the ATF Albany Field Office on the aforementioned investigations.

    Hmm. Interesting. When the SafeShoot wanted to locate near Kingston High School there was a big uproar because many felt it wasn’t safe. The owner talked about so much safety and security and how they’d lock everything up when closed. What happened? How did the criminals get access so easily?

    Yeah but the sad part about it is is when they do get caught if they get caught it will be reduced down to a misdemeanor or infraction and they will be slapped on the wrist and sent on their way that has to stop if they do catch him they need to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law put their ass in jail
