CHAMPAIGN -- A third man has been arrested for guns stolen from an area store. 22-year old Michael Brown, of Champaign, is in custody for trying to sell guns which were stolen from Rural King in September. Last Wednesday, a judge issued a warrant for Brown who is charged with a single count of possession of a stolen firearm.

Two others, 18-year old Jailyne Roberts and 19-year old Joseph Tate have already been charged with burglary for breaking into the store that day and stealing the weapons.
