Approximately 50 firearms were stolen on Sept. 4 between 1:30 and 5:30 a.m., at Myers Auto Parts, 1915 2nd Avenue West, Williston. ATF and the Williston Police Department have subsequently recovered 22 of the firearms during several enforcement operations.

ATF and the Williston Police Department are investigating the theft.

Any information regarding this burglary should be reported to:

ATF is offering a reward of up to $5,000, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $10,000.

This reward is part of a larger national initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which NSSF matches ATF rewards in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to stop the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
