ST. GEORGE, Utah, March 10, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — Federal authorities and others have taken an interest in a gun shop burglary, doubling the reward offered for information leading to arrests and convictions in the early morning burglary of Dixie Gun & Fish on March 4.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has become involved in the probe of the break-in, its Industry Operations investigators in the process of conducting an inventory to determine “the exact number of firearms stolen,” according to an ATF press release from its Denver office shared Wednesday on the St. George Police Department’s online pages.

ATF is offering a $5,000 reward which will be matched by another $5,000 from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry.
