Police: Hot revolver sold for $75

PENN'S CREEK — Shortly after President Obama announced his comprehensive gun-control plan, a Penns Creek man allegedly stole a gun from his grandfather and sold the revolver for $75, according to police.

Tyler Saylor, 20, is charged with theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property — both felonies — stemming from an incident Wednesday at his grandparents’ Penns Creek home, according to court documents.

Police said Saylor took the gun from his grandfather’s gun cabinet with the intent to sell it Wednesday and was stopped by his grandmother, who recognized the .22 caliber revolver, as he tried to leave the home.

However, Saylor departed despite her protests and later sold the weapon for $75 to a unnamed person.

Police are working to locate the person who purchased the gun from Saylor, said Trooper John Medrano, with the Pennsylvania State Police in Selinsgrove and the investigating officer on the case.

The gun has not been recovered, Medrano said.

Saylor was arraigned by District Judge Jeffrey Mensch and released on $2,500 unsecured bail. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 11:30 a.m. Thursday in front of District Judge Lori Hackenburg in Middleburg.
