TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa County Sheriff Deputies have made an arrest in connection to a Tulsa Gun Club theft where guns belonging to the Sheriff's Office were stored.

Deputies say Stewert had probably seen the opportunity to steal the weapons when he was visiting a friend who was working at the Gun Club.

Deputies recovered only 8 of the 11 guns stolen. They believe Stewert was using Craigslist to sell or trade the weapons.

Investigators are still offering a $5,000 reward for the return of the three weapons.

Stewert is facing charges of 2nd degree burglary and knowingly concealing stolen property.
