POCOMOKE, Md. - An investigation into a handgun theft, lands two Princess Anne men behind bars. Pocomoke Police started looking into the November 28th theft from Benelli USA Corp, with help from the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation.

That investigation showed that 33-year-old Ivy Matthews, was a temporary worker for less than a month when the handguns went missing. Police searched his phone and home, and reportedly found evidence of the theft, and evidence that apparently showed Matthews' intention to sell them. Police say Matthews is a convicted felon who isn't allowed to have firearms. Police figured out that 23-year-old Jabri Wilson, was apparently planning to buy the guns from Matthews.

Police arrested Matthews and charged him with theft and possession of firearms by a prohibited person. He is being held at the Somerset County Jail on $100,000 bond. Wilson was also arrested, and charged with conspiracy to purchase stolen firearms and conspiracy to commit theft. He was released after posting bond.
