According to sources, the BATFE has announced that they're investigating the theft of 367 guns that were taken out of a UPS facility in Memphis, Tennessee. The agency is seeking any information that may help with their investigation concerning the two individuals who drove up in a U-Haul truck, getting away with a large number of guns that consisted of three pallets with 367 of Ruger's guns apparently chambered in .22 and .380.
They are offering a $5,000 reward for any info that leads to an arrest or conviction.
One suspect has been caught after police received a phone call reporting suspicious activity, but police are still searching for the other suspect who got away on foot. The $5,000 reward is still in place as of this writing.
Here is a tweet from ATF Chicago announcing that several hundred firearms have been retrieved, along with the U-Haul truck, and one suspect:
