According to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, Hunter C. Bastian, 20, was charged with 10 counts of illegal possession of stolen firearms, three counts of possession of firearms by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The arrests came following an investigation into a burglary and theft on Murl Ellender Road in Sulphur.

Authorities say 10 high-powered rifles were taken from the home.
