Two people are in custody, but two are still on the run after a gun store break-in.

Now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the National Shooting Sports Foundation are offering a reward to bring those people, and the missing weapons, in.

It started at 12:51 a.m. on April 23 when a minivan crashed into Williams Gun Sight Company in Davison Township.

Investigators say several people wearing masks and gloves stole 35 semiautomatic pistols and revolvers before taking off.

The ATF now tells us that two adults are in custody. Three juveniles were questioned and released, and they are still looking for one adult and one juvenile, along with an estimated 23 missing weapons.

Now a $5,000 reward is being offered to help police close the case.

“We take this crime very seriously. The theft of firearms from licensed gun dealers is a top priority for ATF,” said S. Robin Shoemaker, special agent in charge of ATF’s Detroit Field Division. “These firearms are now on the street with the strong potential of being used in violent crimes when they are sold to or end up in the wrong hands.  Through our experience, we know that tips from the public can result in the recovery of those stolen firearms.”

If you have any information, call the ATF at 800-ATF-GUNS.
