DELTONA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida woman has been arrested after stealing 47 guns from her ailing father’s collection.
Volusia County Sheriff’s officials say 58-year-old Robert Carter suffered a stroke last year. He recently moved to a rehabilitation center and asked family members to check on his home and gun collection after Hurricane Irma.
Authorities arrested his daughter 30-year-old Crystal Gorman on Thursday, charging her with grand theft and 19 counts of dealing in stolen property.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports she sold the firearms to pawn shops. Authorities said they could trace the weapons because Carter had a list of their serial numbers. Most had already been resold.
Gorman is being held without bond. It’s unclear if she had an attorney to comment on the charges.
