NEWBERG, Ore. -- A man suspected of stealing 22 guns from a Newberg Fred Meyer store last week has been arrested, police said.

Mark Anthony Reyna, 25, used a hammer to break into the firearm display and put the guns into a stolen backpack about 9 p.m. on June 18, according to ATF special agent Jason Brown.

Reyna was arrested in Mount Vernon, Wash. on June 22 in connection with an incident there earlier this year, Brown said.

Arresting officers found a Ruger .40-caliber pistol in Reyna's car that was linked to the Fred Meyer robbery, according to the criminal complaint. He also looked and dressed like the suspect seen in in the Fred Meyer surveillance video.

Reyna now faces federal charges for theft from a federal firearms licensee.

Mount Vernon police said in January Reyna was arrested after stealing a Taser from a police officer during a traffic stop. He pleaded not guilty to those charges and was released on $20,000 bail.
