RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say they're investigating the theft of numerous firearms from the Rio Rancho Armory.

City police say officers were dispatched to the armory on Wednesday after an alarm activated.

When officers arrived, they saw that someone had forced entry into the business and stole a still-undetermined number of firearms.

Among the items taken were two rifles with suppressors, one short-barrel rifle with suppressor and one short-barrel fully-automatic rifle with suppressor.

Rio Rancho police detectives and federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the case.

The ATF is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the theft.
