SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Two men face numerous charges after police say they stole 22 firearms from a Southfield gun shop earlier this summer.

Police say tips and the work of several agencies led to last week's arrest of Arthuro Leonate, 20, and Tobias Nance, 17, both from Detroit. The pair were charged with, among other things, felony firearms, breaking and entering and malicious destruction of a building.

It was in June when police say they used a stolen truck as a battering ram to break into Action Impact on the 25000 of 8 Mile Road, causing a reported $200,000 in damage.

Bond was set at $100,000 cash or surety. The pair is expected back in court on Aug. 19.
