A Beaver Falls man was in Watertown police custody Monday morning after being charged in a gun theft Sunday afternoon at Steve’s Towing, 249 Coffeen St.

The arrest of Kyle T. Hart, 22, Beaver Falls, followed a witness’s prompt call with a vehicle description, police said.

Mr. Hart is charged with two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny and single counts of third-degree burglary, fourth-degree criminal mischief and unlawful possession of marijuana. He awaited arraignment Monday in City Court.

Police said he is accused of using his elblow to break a window at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday, enabling him to enter Steve’s Towing. Police allege he stole a shotgun and a bolt action hunting rifle belonging to Jason J. Gilmore, Perch Lake Road.

The witness saw an intruder exit through the broken window, and provided a description of the person’s getaway car, police said.

Patrols halted Mr. Hart’s car at 4:55 p.m. in the 600 block of LeRay Street, police said. The guns were recovered at that time, police said.
