PORTLAND – A Portland man was afraid he’d lost an irreplaceable family heirloom, until he found out Wednesday police had tracked down his father's stolen gun collection.

A more complete telling of this story HERE.

Victim asked the perp to drive him to the airport. Thus the perp knew that noone would be home. Was having difficulty selling the muzzle-loaders.

Snider said he planned to buy a gun safe as soon as the stolen property was back in his hands.

Thus poor fellow presumes a lot.

Will the police even let him have the weapons back?
That seems like an arsenal to me. Better contact Homeland Security and make sure this arsenal will be "allowed".
