BALTIMORE — ***UPDATE***
On July 7, 2020, a federal grand jury indicted Nahsiem McIntosh, 21, and Derris Lloyd, 35, both of Wilmington, Delaware, in connection to the May 31 burglary at the American Sportsman gun shop in Newark, Delaware.

According to the indictment, 35 firearms were stolen. If convicted of all crimes charged, the defendants face a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison.

***Original Story***

The ATF is searching for those responsible for setting an overnight fire last Sunday, inside First National Bank in downtown Baltimore.

It happened around 12:45 a.m. on May 31, when multiple suspects damaged and vandalized the outside of the bank located at 300 E. Lombard Street.

At least one of those suspects allegedly broke into the bank and set a fire, according to the ATF's Baltimore Field Division.

“In the last week, citizens have exercised their constitutionally protected right to peacefully assemble in Baltimore and all across the United States,” said ATF Baltimore Special Agent in Charge Timothy Jones. “Some have taken advantage of these large gatherings and used them as an opportunity to commit criminal acts that ATF’s core mission seeks to prevent and solve, such as shootings, burglaries, arson, and bombings.”

About 10 minutes earlier, not too far away in Newark, Delaware, a group of five suspects broke into a gun shop and stole 35 guns and other accessories.

The shop is called American Sportsman, and is located in the 2600 block of Capitol Trail.

"Recovering these firearms as quickly as possible before any additional crimes are committed is a top priority,” said Jones.

Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call the ATF at 888-283-8477 or by email at ATFTips@atf.gov.

A cash reward of up to $5000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the gun shop burglary.

Around the same time as the bank arson, Baltimore Police reported making several arrests in connection to downtown protests.

"Small groups of juveniles and young adults have damaged at least three businesses in the downtown area. Several arrests have been made," Baltimore Police tweeted at 2:28 a.m. last Sunday.

Six others were also arrested the following day the department said.
