GASSVILLE, AR (KAIT) - UPDATE: Another person is in jail following an investigation into drugs and stolen weapons seized during the execution of a search warrant.

Logan Wade Walters, 20, of Midway, was arrested, according to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery. The arrest comes after a follow-up investigation.

On Monday, a Baxter County resident reportedly identified eight of the firearms seized in the June 1 search. The victim is still missing three weapons.

A "large amount" of cash was taken from the man's home as well, according to the sheriff.

Walters, who is already in the Baxter County Detention Center on a probation violation, talked to investigators Monday.

The suspect reportedly said he and a juvenile got into the victim's residence through a downstairs window and stole the items.

They split the cash and spent it, according to Montgomery.

Walters is facing additional charges of residential burglary, theft of property and breaking or entering.

Bond was set at $50,000 for the new charges and he will be in the Baxter County Circuit Court on June 23.

A 17-year-old is in custody after a sheriff says officers found drugs and stolen guns during the execution of a search warrant.

After obtaining more information, a search warrant was issued.

Officers searched the house Wednesday evening.
