MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) - Police have arrested a convicted felon after they say he stole some guns from the McDonough Police station.
Police say 33-year-old Jamie Lee Clark of Jonesboro broke into the police station June 1 by climbing through a window in the administrative building. He took several items, including the guns, from the evidence room.
Court records show Clark sold some of the guns he had stolen, but it wasn't clear how many guns were taken and how many have been sold.
Police also arrested three other people during a raid on a Jonesboro home Tuesday. At the home, police said, investigators found a gun, drugs, a flat screen television and several other items stolent from the police station.
An arrest warrant says 26-year-old Elvin Deleon of College Park, one of the men arrested Tuesday, bought one of the stolen guns from Clark for $100. Deleon knew the I-Taurus Millennium 9 mm was stolen and worth more than $100, the warrant says.
He was arrested on one count of theft by receiving stolen property.
The other two people found at the Jonesboro home - 28-year-old Charita S. Woullard and 25-year-old Carlos V. Conesa - are being investigated by police. Woullard is charged with two counts of drug possession and Conesa was arrested on an outstanding child support warrant, jail records show.
Clark was arrested June 3, according to the Henry County Sheriff's Department. He was being held at the Henry County jail on five counts of burglary, two counts of criminal interference with government property, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two probation violations.
