HOLLY SPRINGS, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Federal agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms confirm that more than a hundred guns were taken from a Holly Springs firearms store and gun range, in a heist that may be connected to other thefts of its kind.
Holly Springs Police said Wednesday night after the store had closed, thieves forced entry through the front door and proceeded to steal "product" from the store.
Federal agents said more than a hundred guns and several silencers were taken. Agents said the method of forced entry is similar to other recent thefts but did not specify their locations.
The Holly Springs store has been burglarized multiple times in recent years. No word if the same burglary crew could be behind this latest attempt.
The ATF said there is a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the capture of the individuals responsible for the theft.
