Matthew Clinton, 19, and Hollis Littlefield, 35, were arrested Tuesday after that earlier arrest led to a follow up investigation concerning stolen property found at Littlefield's home.

In that incident, a 56-year-old man claimed golf clubs, guns, fishing poles and several knives were taken from his pickup. The items were estimated to have a value of around $1,300.

The guns, a .22 rifle Marlin lever action model 57 and a Remington870 Express Magnum 12g shotgun, have not yet been located and Littlefield is facing a separate charge for disposing of the weapons.
