A Carroll County man is charged with stealing nearly $30,000 dollars in guns from a Weakley County home.
Weakley County Sheriff’s Captain Randall McGowan says 37-year-old Scottie Nicodemus Owens, of Hollow Rock, has been arrested for stealing 40 guns from a residence on Tumbling Creek Road just east of Gleason in January.
As of Monday, only nine of the 40 guns have been recovered.
