Gun theft from Somerset dealer prompts reward

A reward has been offered to catch thieves who stole nearly 20 guns from a firearms dealer in Somerset.

A total of 15 shotguns and three rifles were taken during the break-in at Rifleman Firearms in Hambridge, last week.

A reward of up to £1,000 has been offered by Crimestoppers for information that leads to the prosecution of the culprits.

Avon and Somerset Police said no ammunition was taken.

Det Con Andrew Tearle said: "We'll be reviewing CCTV footage as part of the investigation and we've been speaking with registered dealers nationally to ensure they're aware of the incident."
