Thomas Faison, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said five people have arrested and those suspects represent everyone allegedly involved in the burglary and theft.
All five were arrested in the Newport News area, and at least three of them live there.
"The guns are down in Newport News, Va.," Faison said. "They took them down there to sell. We're recovering them now. I don't have the number of how many have been recovered."
Those arrested and charged with one count each of burglary and grand larceny were identified as:
Deshawn Shields, 19, of the 4500 block of Marshall Avenue in Newport News; Endyia Washington, 25, and Mariah V. Walker, 22, of the same address; and Xavier S. Greene, 20, whose address was not immediately known.
All four are being processed at the Newport News Jail, police said.
