An Ontario County man has been arrested in connection with guns stolen last month from a home in the town of Hopewell.
Ontario County Sheriff’s Deputies say 23-year old Travon Whitfield of Canandaigua purchased one of the guns stolen in January. Whitfield was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and possession of stolen property. Whitfield was sent to the Ontario County Jail on 20,000 bail bond.
Deputies say a 16-year-old Hopewell boy stole a handgun and two rifles from the home and sold two of the guns to 21-year-old Christian Garcia, of Geneva, who then resold the guns.
