LONGS, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are offering a $20,000 reward after more than 200 guns were stolen from a Horry County store after thieves struck during Hurricane Matthew.

Five Star Gun owner Daniel Huneycutt said on Facebook and in local media that the thieves took advantage of the shop having no power to break in as Hurricane Matthew went through the area last weekend.

Huneycutt says a number of display cases were smashed, and guns of all types were taken. A friend checking on the store in Longs reported the break in Sunday.

Huneycutt says the thieves also poured bleach everywhere to try to hide their tracks.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $10,000 reward, matched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation trade association.
