Using surveillance footage and physical evidence at the scene, deputies were able to develop Patrick Ambrose Daly, 22, of Newport as a suspect. When deputies contacted Daly at his residence, they located additional evidence lying on his front porch, linking him to the investigation.

During a search of Daly’s residence, deputies recovered all six handguns, a sawed off shotgun, a small quantity of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Deputies also learned Wesley Ray Pruett, 36, of Newport had assisted Daly in disposing of evidence after the burglary.

Daly was charged with Burglary II; Theft I x 6; Unlawful possession of methamphetamine; and Unlawful possession of a short barreled shotgun. He was lodged at the Lincoln County Jail with a bail of $500,000. Pruett was cited and released for Hindering Prosecution.
