Pleasant Grove Man Charged in Theft of 26 Guns

Prosecutors say Ryan Ferguson used a stolen forklift to break through the wall of one of the businesses, where he lifted out a large safe containing the firearms. A grand jury indicted Ferguson on Thursday, charging him with possession of firearms by a convicted felon and possession of stolen firearms.

Ferguson was arrested a few days after the burglary, following a high speed chase. He is expected to be arraigned in the next few weeks. The maximum penalty for each charge is up to ten years.
