A Vancleave man broke into a home, stole guns and tools and sold them to friends of one of the homeowner’s sons, Chief Deputy John Ledbetter said.

Sean Cameron Barnett, 23, pried open the back door of a Vancleave home over the weekend while the homeowner was out of town, Ledbetter said Thursday.

One of the homeowner’s sons discovered the break-in and reported five guns worth about $2,000 and some tools were missing.

The homeowner’s sons recovered the stolen items, Ledbetter said.

Deputies arrested Barnett on a burglary charge. It’s unclear if additional charges will be filed.

Barnett’s bond was set at $5,000, but he isn’t eligible to post bail.

He was on parole on a grand larceny conviction in Jackson County, the state Department of Corrections website shows.
