A 42-year-old Chickasaw County man is charged with stealing a rifle from a friend's home in December and selling it.

Clay County Sheriff Eddie Scott says Brian Boggs is charged with burglary in connection with the theft. Investigators believe Boggs sold the New England Arms 30-30 rifle and that it already has changed hands again. 

The burglary occurred in western Clay County.

Boggs is being held in the Clay County Detention Center with a $5,000 bond. His preliminary court in Clay County Justice Court will be June 7. 

The case will be presented to the October term of Grand Jury.
