HATFIELD, Pa. (CBS) – Authorities in Montgomery County, Pa. say one man is under arrest but a second is still on the loose following a burglary in Hatboro during the past week in which several firearms were taken from the home.
Police say Robert Johnson was taken into custody at the Colmar train station in Hatfield, where authorities say he was attempting to sell some of the stolen guns. But a second man, identified as Huett Johnson of Hatboro, got away.
Montgomery County district attorney Risa Ferman says both men have criminal convictions that prohibit them from possessing firearms.
“We still have another armed and dangerous man out on the streets,” DA Ferman told reporters this afternoon. “We want people to know that we are looking for him, we want people to know not to approach him. But that if he is seen or if someone knows where he is, they should contact law enforcement right away.”
Police did recover four assault rifles, but at least five guns were taken from the home sometime between May 29th and June 2nd.
