COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) -

Columbia police arrested a former Columbia park ranger accused of breaking into a home and stealing several firearms.

Police say 31-year-old Orlando Kendall Reeves is charged with first degree burglary and grand larceny.

According to an incident report, on August 4 Reeves allegedly broke into a home on Rutledge Hill Road by kicking in the front door.

Once inside, Reeves is accused of stealing two gun safes worth nearly $1300.

According to the victim, the gun safe contained approximately 30 guns, mostly used for hunting. The guns have an estimated value of $50,000.00.

Police say a witness at the scene aided officers by providing the license plate of the vehicle Reeves was seen driving as he fled the location.

Reeves was arrested on August 21 at South East Park on Hazelwood Road where he was a City of Columbia Park Ranger under the Parks and Recreation Department.

Reeves is no longer employed by the City of Columbia.

Police say they continue to investigate the whereabouts of the stolen property and have entered the serial numbers of the stolen guns into a national crime data base.
