ATOKA, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information concerning the theft of about 21 firearms from a gun shop in West Tennessee.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said in a news release Monday that the guns were reported stolen Sept. 27 from McFarland’s Gun Shop in Atoka, a town located 30 miles northeast of Memphis.

ATF is offering the reward in the amount of up to $2,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case. That amount will be matched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry.

Anyone with information about the burglary should contact the ATF at (800) ATF-GUNS or the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office at (901) 475-3307.
