Joshua Letts is a registered sex offender and accused of having sex with a teenage girl.

His arrest led investigators to six other drug arrests, then they discovered the stolen guns.

Police say Letts and Ryan Scherbaty broke into a pole barn near the town of Lake in Clare county back in November.

Police found the stolen items during their investigation into Letts' sex crime case.

The pair are charged with breaking into the barn as well as felony firearm possession.

They are both in the Clare County Jail.
