The homeowner had been on vacation and when they returned, discovered a firearm and other items were missing.

Deputies say Chaney destroyed the serial number from the stolen gun.

“We will continue this type of pro active enforcement where firearms and felons are concerned.  Felons in possession of firearms can only lead to tragedy,” said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.

Detectives say the investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.
