TOWN OF ULSTER – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the National Shooting Sports Foundation have offered a combined reward of up to $2,500 – each agency offering half – for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the burglary of firearms from two federally licenses dealers.
