BELLEVUE, Wash. — A $10,000 reward is being offered for information following the theft of about 70 guns from a Bellevue gun shop in western Washington state.

KING-TV reports in a story on Friday that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and National Shooting Sports Foundation are each offering $5,000.

Police say that three people on Tuesday smashed a stolen Honda Accord through the front door of the West Coast Armory and left in the same vehicle after stealing about 70 guns.

Police say most were handguns, but four semi-automatic rifles were also taken.

Authorities say the suspects wore hooded jackets and face coverings.
