OKLAHOMA CITY – An alert citizen helped police arrest a convicted felon who was allegedly attempting to sell stolen guns.

Police took 25-year-old Zachary Bowers into custody Saturday morning at the Oklahoma State fair grounds.

Authorities say a gun dealer bought firearms from bowers, but became suspicious when bowers allegedly left more guns in the dealers possession.

According to investigators, Bowers asked if the dealer could sell the guns for him– saying he would return when the gun show was over.

That’s when the dealer contacted police.
