BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Kern County officials say two of four firearms stolen from an unmarked sheriff's vehicle last week have been recovered.

KBAK-TV reports deputies responding to a tip late Friday in Bakersfield found an AR-15 and a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun that belong to the sheriff's office.  A 16-year-old juvenile was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property.

Deputies are still searching for a missing Glock 27 handgun and an unspecified fourth gun.

The weapons were taken from an unmarked car assigned to an undercover deputy while it was parked outside the deputy's home.
