Chico Police detained a suspect who broke into a military surplus store and stole several rifles and fled the scene. He was later found and the rifles recovered.

Weston Davis, 25, is suspected of breaking into Gates Resale near the 1100 block of Park Ave.

Police believe the suspect used a hole in the roof to enter the building, break the locks on several gun safes and flee with the weapons.

Police and the surplus store’s security searched the area and located the suspect hiding under a trailer at the car dealership across the street. The rifles were found in a truck bed of one of the vehicles at the dealership.

Davis was booked into Butte County Jail on burglary charges. Police said Davis was out on bail stemming from commercial burglary charges at the time of this arrest.
