NORWICH, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say they've recovered more than 30 firearms stolen from a central New York gun dealer by a woman who's in jail and a second suspect who was later found dead.
State police say they've located all 26 handguns and six long guns that were stolen last week from Mayhood's Sporting Goods in Norwich in Chenango County.
Troopers arrested 25-year-old Brandy Bousson of Norwich last Wednesday and charged her with burglary. Police later said that 29-year-old Christopher Gonzalez had been found dead in the woods in Norwich on Friday. Troopers say he had also been sought for questioning in the gun thefts.
Police announced on Monday that an autopsy determined Gonzalez died of hypothermia, with drug toxicity contributing to his accidental death.
Bousson is being held in the county jail on $250,000 bail.
