BRENTWOOD Tenn. (WKRN) – A reward is now being offered in the burglary of a Brentwood gun store that left the front glass and security bars smashed to pieces.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in conjunction with the Brentwood Police Department and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, announced the reward Wednesday.
ATF is offering the reward in the amount of up to $2,500, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $5,000.

Approximately 13 firearms were reported stolen to the Brentwood Police Department.
