Police in Tucson, Ariz., have arrested and charged a self-storage employee for allegedly stealing as many as 191 firearms, rare artwork, knives and other valuables over a three-year period from the facility where he works. Now police are trying to find owners of many of the stolen goods.

Andrew Hill, 20, who works at Kolb Road Self-Storage in Tucson, was charged this week with five counts of trafficking in stolen property, and one count each of burglary and theft by control for incidents between 2006 and 2009. Six people reported 191 missing guns, but police have recovered only 50 guns. Of those 50, gun owners have claimed only 34. Because the storage units show no signs of forced entry, the tenants who stored the remaining 16 guns may not be aware their property was stolen.

The owners of the recovered artwork, knives and other items have not come forward. Police are asking anyone who stored items at Kolb Road Self-Storage at any time between 2006 and 2009 to check their units to make sure nothing is missing.
