EAST BEND, N.C. — Police have arrested two men in connection with the larceny of numerous firearms from an East Bend home last summer.

According to police, a report was filed from a residence on Parker Road on June 14, 2013, saying that the home had been broken into and several guns were taken.

Detectives with the Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, investigated and found that the guns were traded for narcotics in another county.

Joseph Dale McCormick, 30, and Chase Remington Tickle, 28, both of the East Bend area, were arrested Monday and charged with 27 counts of felony larceny of firearms.

Both McCormick and Tickle are in the custody of the U.S. Marshals under no bond.
