OREM, Utah (AP) -- Orem police have arrested two people accused of burglarizing a gun shop -- one is the daughter of the shop owner, and the other is the woman's former boyfriend.

The shop, Gunnies, discovered more than a month ago that it was missing at least 25 firearms.

Orem detectives say they made the arrests Wednesday.

The suspects, 31-year-old Raquel Taylor, and 28 year-old Jeremy Lamb were each charged with burglary and possession or transfer of stolen firearms.

Police say Taylor is the daughter of the shop owner, and Lamb is her former boyfriend. They also say Taylor and Lamb had keys to the shop.

Only two of the missing guns have been recovered.

Lamb was already being held in Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of possessing the two stolen guns.

Taylor was booked Wednesday into Utah County jail.
