MUST SEE: Smash and Grab Burglars Steal Firearms from Gun Shop in Evergreen


EVERGREEN, AL (WKRG) — The ATF has released surveillance video showing the burglary of a gun store in Evergreen, Alabama.

Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of two individuals seen stealing 14 guns from Salter Hardware on September 26.

In the video, one burglar throws an object into the glass storefront to break-in with another individual.  The two men hastily grab five rifles and exit the storefront through the smashed glass.

In the ATF press release, investigators say 14 firearms were stolen. The ATF tells News 5 that there are additional videos of the suspects returning inside the store to steal more weapons.

This is the second time Salter Hardware has been burglarized of firearms. On July 15, suspects broke in and stole 21 guns. They have not been caught, News 5 is told.

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.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the ATF at (800) ATF-GUNS
