A Florida man reported two of his guns stolen but police later determined he tried to use them as payment for sex with an underage girl.
Michael Shane McCreary, 53, reported to police that two of his firearms were stolen from one of his properties in the 100 block of Howard Street, Enola.
In December last year, East Pennsboro Township Police was contacted by Harrisburg City Bureau of Police to say that one of the firearms was recovered.
They said that they observed and followed McCreary and saw bring another man into the city where the firearm was sold for drugs, according to a statement.
After further investigation, police said that McCreary had paid for sexual favors with an underage female.
While the girl did not want the firearms, police say, she asked her boyfriend to take the guns.
McCreary then drove the man to Harrisburg to purchase drugs, according to police.
McCreary was charged with four counts of sale or transfer of firearms, prostitution, unlawful contact with a minor, false reports to law enforcement authorities, unsworn falsification to authorities, and corruption of minors.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled, according to police.
