A Las Vegas man has been charged with stealing 31 guns and two cars from a local couple’s home while they were away on vacation, according to an indictment released Friday by the Clark County District Attorney’s Office.
Vincent Debarr, 39, was charged with 31 counts of grand larceny of a firearm, two counts of grand larceny auto and one count each of conspiracy to commit burglary, burglary while in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm by an ex-felon. The charges stem from the April burglary of a home in the northeast valley.
According to the arrest report, Debarr and friend Autumn Connell burglarized the home of Connell’s relatives while they were on vacation in St. George, Utah.
When the couple returned home, they found several holes had been drilled in their front door and their alarm system was disabled. Missing were a collection of 31 vintage guns and two cars, a 2006 Chrysler 300 and a 2008 Hyundai Elantra, according to the arrest report.
Several days after the burglary, Connell voluntarily went to police and told them Debarr used physical force to coerce her to help him burglarize the home by providing the pass code needed to disarm the security system, according to the arrest report.
Connell was arrested by police after their meeting, and in June she pleaded guilty in Clark County District Court to one count of grand larceny auto and one count of conspiracy to commit burglary as part of a plea agreement.
Debarr was arrested in late May on charges unrelated to the burglary, but during an interview with police, he acknowledged to being present during the crime, according to the arrest report.
Debarr’s arraignment in district court is scheduled for Aug. 22.
