RALEIGH — Police Thursday charged a man with having four stolen shotguns and a stolen rifle and with being wanted in Florida.
Police stopped Michael Anthony Griffin, 26, on Capital Boulevard about 3 p.m.
In his possession, they said, he had three 12-gauge shotguns, a 20-gauge shotgun and a .270-caliber rifle.
Police charged Griffin with five counts of possession of a stolen firearm, five counts of possession of a firearm by a felon and failing to appear in court on three charges from 2011 and one from 2010.
They also said a computer check showed he was wanted by authorities in Hillsborough County, Fla., which is the Tampa area.
An arrest warrant did not specify why he was wanted there.
When arrested, griffin gave police an address in Hobgood, in Halifax County, but a report from when he was booked showed him as having no permanent address.
Magistrates set Griffins bail at $600,000, and he was being held for a court appearance Friday.
