2 Winchester men charged in gun shop burglary

Two men from Winchester were arrested Friday night stemming from an investigation into a burglary at Bud's Gun Shop in Paris in the spring.

Joshua McBride, 22, and Marcus Joseph, 23, were charged with first-degree burglary and taken to the Bourbon County Detention Center.

Paris police said in a news release that a tip from Crime Stoppers helped lead them to the two men. Police also recovered stolen items and a car used in the April 26 burglary.

Paris police have said the burglars took a few firearms, but an alarm scared them off. Investigators would not say how many or what kinds of guns were taken. The two men were caught on video cutting the store's phone lines, then leaving in a white sedan about four hours before the burglary, police said.
