Man finds bag of stolen guns while working in yard

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A man doing yard work Monday morning found a bag of stolen guns, police said.

The 67-year-old man was working in his backyard in the 800-block of West Monroe Ave. when he spotted a red bag in some bushes.

The man looked inside the bag and found three pistols with magazines. Two of the weapons, according to the police report, were loaded.

He then took the weapon-stuffed backpack, which had the words "Straight Outta Lewis Family" written on it, to the Justice Complex, 410 W. Washington Ave. and turned it over to police.

According to the incident report, the guns were reported stolen during three residential burglaries last year.

There are no suspects at this time.
