SAN ANTONIO – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information on two suspects who broke into a San Antonio gun store and stole 20 firearms.

San Antonio police began investigating the burglary Thursday morning after they were called to Ranger Firearms in the 1300 block of Austin Highway.

The suspects used an axe to break into the store, according to the ATF, around 3:32 a.m. They made off with 20 pistols.
