Guns recovered, suspects identified in pawn shop burglary
Two suspects who stole several guns in a pawn shop burglary are in custody, according to authorities. Police are searching for a third suspect.
On Monday, members of the ATF – working with officers from the OPD Firearms Unit, Gang Unit, Burglary Unit, K-9 Unit, Air Support Unit and Uniform Patrol Bureau – took 20-year-old Anthony Howell and a 16-year-old into custody. Both are facing charges in connection to the Good Guys Gun and Pawn burglary from Saturday.
Howell was booked for two counts of burglary and one count of possession of a stolen firearm. A 16-year-old male was booked for two counts of burglary, and one count of possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a handgun by a minor.
OPD and the ATF are still attempting to locate a third suspect, identified as Timothy Webster. An active Felony Warrant has been issued for the arrest of Timothy Webster for his involvement in the burglary. Webster should be considered armed and dangerous.
Officers recovered 20 guns during this investigation, but believe that Webster may be in possession of additional guns.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Webster should contact the ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS.
