Hennessy has been in custody since Dec. 12 on unrelated charges. Police say he was identified as a suspect in the days after the gun store burglary, but they couldn't make the arrest until they gathered more evidence.

One of the stolen handguns has been recovered. Police are still trying to track down the other four.
