Man indicted on gun shop theft

Federal authorities indicted a Pennsylvania man Thursday for stealing nearly a dozen firearms from a Muncy gun shop, the Justice Department said last week.

Samuel Bozochovic, 35, is charged with theft of firearms, possession of stolen firearms, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon. Court documents show Bozochovic is also charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin.

Bozochovic is accused of breaking into R&J Welch gun store on Feb. 8 and stealing 11 handguns. Later that same day, Bozochovic was apprehended while distributing heroin to another individual. A search of his apartment turned up 48 packets of heroin, as well as five of the stolen firearms. The remaining six guns stolen from the shop have yet to be recovered.
