The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of people responsible for the theft of a truck and trailer containing dozens of firearms in Portland.
Police believe a man and a woman stole a truck and trailer containing the firearms from the Oxford Suites hotel in Portland’s Jantzen Beach on Tuesday. The trailer belongs to a federally licensed firearms dealer who was in the area for a gun show at the Portland Expo Center.
The driver crashed the stolen truck and trailer on the Interstate 5 Bridge, damaging several vehicles and tying up northbound traffic for several hours on Tuesday evening.
Angelina Nicole Pintor-Schindler, 19, has since been arrested and is facing a federal charge of one count of theft from a federal firearms licensee. The bureau believes the firearms are still at large and in the possession of another man involved in the theft.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved, and the recovery of the firearms, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation is matching the reward, bringing the total to $10,000.
