One of the residents of the apartment arrived home after midnight to find the door of the apartment open and the rifles missing. Earlier that night, the victim’s roommate had invited people, including Pryor, to the apartment, and Pryor allegedly returned later in the night to take the guns from the apartment, Kimble said.

Pryor cooperated with law enforcement to recover the guns that had been hidden in a wooded area in the county, Kimble said. He was arraigned Monday and given a $5,000 bond.
