AUSTIN (KXAN) — An MP-5 fully automatic machine gun was among the weapons stolen from a northwest Austin firearms dealer on Monday.
The burglary happened at around 3 a.m. at ATX Armory — located at 12119 Roxie Dr. — next to US 183 and Anderson Mill Road. Two males entered the business and stole at least six firearms, leaving in a 4-door sedan that’s possibly silver.
Within a day of releasing the surveillance photographs, Austin police say they were able to identify and arrest the two teenagers, both of whom are younger than 17 years old. Charges are pending. All of the stolen firearms were also recovered.
A reward of up to $11,000 for information leading to the suspects’ arrests and convictions was being offered by the ATF, National Shooting Sports Foundation and Crime Stoppers of Austin.
“Getting illegally obtained guns off the street is ATF’s top priority,” said ATF Houston Field Division Special Agent in Charge Fred Milanowski.
Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to call the APD Commercial Burglary Unit at 512-974-6941 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS. You can also contact ATF at 888-ATF-TIPS.
