LOGAN — Federal officials are offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of 10 firearms and arrest of the people who stole them from Fast Cache Pawn.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is putting up the reward as it tries to find out who stole the guns on February 8. The store is a federally licensed firearms dealer.

Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen said the two people forced entry to gain access to the store at 527 South Main St. Approximately 10 handguns, of various makes, models and calibers were stolen in the burglary.

Officials are hoping people recognize two people spotted in surveillance video taken nearby the store at the time of the burglary.

One of the suspects is described as a heavy-set male, seen wearing a mask and backpack.

The other suspect is described as a slim-build male who was wearing a hoodie.

Jensen said stealing firearms and possession of stolen firearms is a federal crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

We are asking for the public’s help in our effort to apprehend and convict those responsible. We are confident that someone can help identify a suspect, and we encourage them to call us.”
