A $10,000 reward is being offered for information related to a pawn shop burglary in Ashland that occurred nearly a year ago.
The burglary occurred in the early morning hours on July 30, 2018. According to authorities, a masked person broke through a window of Bay Area Pawn, opened the gun display case and put more than 30 firearms into a bag. A number of the stolen firearms were recovered last year in Minneapolis, a news release said.
"We're looking for any details that members of the public can provide," said acting special agent in charge Kirk Howard of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives St. Paul Field Division. "It's been nearly a year since the break-in and around a dozen firearms have been recovered so far. We need the public's help in both the recovery and of the remaining firearms as well as to identify the individual who is responsible for this crime."
The reward is being offered by the ATF in conjunction with the Ashland Police Department and the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
