There are now two rewards totaling $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people who stole 17 semi-automatic AR-15 rifles.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives Atlanta Division and the National Shooting Sport Foundation (a trade association for the firearms industry) announced both are offering $5,000 rewards.

The ATF and the Bibb County Sheriff's Office are still investigating the theft of 17 AR-15 rifles from the Bass Pro Shops on the night of Sunday, September 29, 2013.

The guns range in price from $600-$1,000 depending on the manufacturer and upgrades.

They are asking for the public's help in recovering the guns and arresting those responsible.

One rifle was recovered in an Atlanta traffic stop overnight Tuesday.

Anyone with information should contact ATF Special Agent Ashley Lightner at 478-405-2493 or Lieutenant Frank Thomas with Bibb SO at 478-621-5678.  You can remain anonymous.
