Westerville police said two Columbus men were arrested after allegedly stealing a gun from a Westerville man's residence.
According to reports, the victim called police on the afternoon of July 1 to report his gun had been stolen from his house in the 600 block of Glastonbury Court.
The man told police he knew the two men who had taken the gun, and that when they were recently at his house, they had been "asking about the gun" after seeing its case, according to reports.
When he confronted the two suspects -- ages 18 and 19 -- and told them he was calling the police, he said they abruptly left the house.
Police eventually found the two suspects and discovered the gun in a sock on the ground nearby, reports stated. Both also were carrying a small amount of suspected marijuana.
The two men were charged with one count of theft of a firearm and possession of marijuana and taken to the Franklin County jail, according to reports.
