An investigation into the theft of three firearms from an address in Yorkshire concluded with four people being arrested.

State Police were informed of the theft on January 8. Troopers traced the crime to 16-year-old John Board, Jr. of Delevan, who was arrested and charged with fourth degree grand larceny. He is being held in the Cattaraugus County Jail on $25,000 bail.

Investigators determined Board had help selling the weapons, which led to the arrests of 42-year-old Dawn Perrington and 16-year-old William Perrington, both of Delevan.

Dawn is charged with fourth degree criminal facilitation and first degree unlawfully dealing with a child. William is charged with fourth degree criminal facilitation and fourth degree criminal possession of stolen property. Both were ticketed and released.

Police say Board sold the weapons to 26-year-old Christopher Lund of Freedom, a convicted felon. Last Thursday, troopers executed a search warrant at his home and found the stolen weapons as well as evidence of other illegal activity.

Lund is facing charges of criminal purchase of a weapon, fourth degree criminal possession of stolen property, fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon, fifth degree criminal possession of stolen property, fifth degree criminal possession of marijuana and unlawfully possessing or selling noxious material. He was taken to the Cattaraugus County Jail on $25,000 bail.
