According to McCracken County deputies, a burglary was reported at a home in the 7100 block of Old Calvert City Drive in the Reidland area.

While arresting Myrick on the warrants, deputies say they saw several old pieces of stereo equipment inside the home.

According to deputies, they learned that on March 29 Myrick allegedly pawned a Marlin lever action rifle at an area pawn shop. They say this rifle had been reported stolen during a burglary earlier in 2016.

The rifle was seized and Myrick was charged with receiving stolen property.

Deputies say the investigation is ongoing and additional charges and/or arrests could be made.
