19-year old Emmanuel Bryant was caught in a brief chase when police arrived- his partner in crime, 18-year old Blake Thomas was arrested later in the morning.
Law enforcement officials said the two had taken a number of rifles and handguns and had hidden them around the business when police arrived- investigators say the pair could be responsible for a number of other recent burglaries, as well.
