Crowd Tries to Ransack Local Pawn Shop, ATF Offers $5,000 Reward

Federal investigators are looking for several people who tried to break into a pawn shop after a night of protests in West Palm Beach earlier this week.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives explains that a man fired shots at the entrance to Queen of Palms on Broadway Ave. just after midnight on Monday.

Investigators add that the man and a group of other people armed with machetes, rocks, and hammers tried to break into the business.

They say the burglar drove a white over black Range Rover with a New York license plate. The tag is JLF8429.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Palm Beach County CrimeStoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.

You could receive a reward of up to $5,000 if your tip leads to an arrest.
