BIG SPRING - A Crimestoppers tip lead to the arrest of a Big Spring man wanted for stealing firearms.

Officers started monitoring the Park Village Apartments at Wassan Road around 8:45 p.m. Thursday night.

About two hours later, they spotted 25-year-old Jason Edwards loading items into a vehicle and driving to another part of the complex.

That's where police stopped him.

They found a loaded handgun and cocaine on Edwards and more weapons in his apartment.

The firearms were reported stolen from a home in the 1500 block of Sycamore on Wednesday.

Edwards is currently charged with drug possession and for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

He was already wanted for revoking his probation warrant for an unrelated assault.

Authorities say more charges are pending as their investigation continues.
