Reward Offered in Theft of a Dozen Guns

Snellville Police are offering a Playstation 3 or Best Buy gift card for information leading to an arrest.

On Sept. 11, between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m., unknown persons entered a home in the Hawthorne Glen subdivision in Snellville through a back window.

They took 12 weapons, including handguns, shotguns and rifles. One of the rifles was an AR-15, an assault rifle.

Snellville Police are offering a reward in the form of a $350 Best Buy gift card or a Playstation 3.

"We believe that there is a possibility that juveniles are involved," said Sgt. Trey Downs, "so we thought offering this reward would be more appealing to the group we are targeting."

Downs said that any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated, as it is imperative that they locate these weapons and get them off the streets.  

Call Snellville Police at 770-985-3555 or Sgt. Trey Downs at 770-985-7216 with any information.

The owner should also be held accountable for failing to properly secure these weapons. No one should be able to enter your premises and pick up an AR and leave. A safe maybe??!!!!......especially if you're a serious gun collector!!!!! Now we've put local PD on edge with these missing weapons and exponentially increased the risk involved with being a law enforcement officer period. The reward money should come in the form of a fine against the owner and not the tax payers $$
