A Vicksburg man was arrested and charged with burglary, possession and transfer of a stolen firearm and petty larceny Tuesday.

Lance Burton, 20, was arrested at 11:59 a.m. at his home at 3700 Gowall Road. He remained in the Warren County Jail this morning with no bond set because he was out on bond at the time of theft. He had been awaiting trial on a strong armed robbery charge from November.
