Berkeley County arrest nets several stolen guns, deputies say

Berkeley County deputies said they recovered several stolen guns when they arrested Arthur Roy Houston, 26, of Maplewood Road.

Several stolen guns were recovered when a Moncks Corner man was arrested Friday, according to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office.

Arthur Roy Houston, 26, of Maplewood Road was charged with four counts of receiving stolen goods, as well as possession of cocaine base and marijuana.

Deputies said they found nine guns at his house. Five of them were confirmed to be stolen Dec. 19 from a house on Cane Gully Road, sheriff's office spokesman Dan Moon said. Investigators were trying to determine if any of the other guns were also stolen.

Houston was being held in the Berkeley County jail Monday.
