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.
