Reward offered after 23 guns stolen from Jefferson Co. pawn shop

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A reward is being offered after 23 guns were stolen from Family Pawn in Birmingham.

The business on Springville Road was broken into in January.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Birmingham Police and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

“The firearms that are stolen typically will end up in other parts of the country in a very short period of time, and that’s why we are encouraging the public if they have any information, any information on social media platforms videos, photographs, to contact local authorities,” said Michael Knight with the ATF.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at (888) ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477) or Crime Stoppers at (205) 254-7777.
