Police Identify Person of Interest in Sparks Black Rifle Robbery

Posted: Updated:

Sparks Police say they identified a person of interest in connection with last Friday's robbery at Sparks Black Rifle.

While they have not publicly released the person's name or how they identified him, they do thank the community for their help.

Police say two younger looking men stole several handguns and a rifle from the store, around 3:45 a.m. 

"We are going to stay about at least a dozen guns," says Sparks Lt. Tony Marconato.

Police tell us the owner of the green Honda Civic sedan was not involved. 

"The people that would break into here and steal those (guns) probably don't have the best intent for those guns,"says owner Gordon Gray.

Police say there were no injuries reported.

Gray says the store will be closed for the rest of the day. 

"Half our store front is broken, our glass is gone, the security gates are beyond repair."

He adds that he's thankful to the community as they continue to reach out to him and offer support.

"Several of the gun shops have already reached out to us and offered their assistance."

If you have any information that can help authorities, call Secret Witness at 775-322-4900, or text your tip to 847411. Your information will remain anonymous. A $1,000 reward is being offered.
