PAINCOURTVILLE, La. (AP) - Federal firearms agents and a firearms industry trade association are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those involved in the theft of guns from an Assumption Parish hardware store.

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives officials announced the reward Tuesday, more than two days after an unidentified man broke into Sagona’s True Value Hardware store in Paincourtville (PAN’-koor-vil).

ATF Special Agent Kevin Moran tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1r8B3SB) the actual number of weapons is not being disclosed at this time due to the investigation. He said that only handguns were taken, primarily semi-automatic pistols and a few revolvers.
