New Castle County police have arrested a 19-year-old who allegedly stole 21 guns from a Glendale home. Police say Joshua Thomas stole the guns from two elderly people as they slept Nov. 23. He allegedly removed the guns from a case in the basement.

Authorities caught up with Thomas when they found him in a car stopped for unrelated reasons. Investigators say they were able to restore the obliterated serial number on a gun Thomas was carrying and linked the gun to the burglary.

Police haven't found the other weapons.
