PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati man has been arrested, accused of trying to pawn stolen guns.

Bobby Ray Sellers was arrested at his home on charges of receiving stolen property.

Sellers is accused of pawning 21 guns at a shop in Newport, Ky. Police say the guns were taken in an Oct. 2 residential burglary in Harlan Township in Warren County.

Warren, Clermont and Clinton counties have experienced a rash of daytime home burglaries recently. Detectives believe there are several groups of burglars working in the area. Homeowners are cautioned to be alert to suspicious persons coming to their door or strange cars in the driveways of neighbors who are not home.

Sellers is being held in the Hamilton County jail, awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
