Federal agents and the Hanover County, Va., sheriff’s office are trying to track down 30 firearms that were stolen from a Virginia gun store during a burglary late Thursday night, officials said.
The guns were stolen from Hopkins Gun and Tackle in Mechanicsville about 11:50 p.m., according to officials from the ATF Washington Field Office. The burglary was the second at the store in less than a month, as a another theft happened there March 21 when multiple hand guns were taken, authorities said.
The March break-in may be connected to a series of incidents in the area near Richmond, ATF said.
ATF offered a reward for information that leads to an arrest or and conviction or recovery of the stolen weapons.
