Three Nicholasville men have been arrested after the theft of multiple weapons, including shotguns and rifles, according to the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office.
Cameron Miller, 18, Jacob Lay, 18, and Bradley Bush, 19, are charged with receiving stolen firearms. Miller also faces charges of possession of burglary tools, fleeing police, criminal mischief and two counts of auto theft.
The three were arrested about 9:30 p.m. at Hunters Ferry and Chrisman Mill roads, Chief Deputy Allen Peel said.
The theft was reported Tuesday when a man who lives on Hunters Ferry Road came home after being away for a few days to find that about a dozen firearms had been taken during a burglary, Peel said.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives assisted in the case.
