The Barron County man accused of stealing several handguns from an area gun shop has been sentenced to prison time.  

34-year old Joseph Hrbacek of Chetek, was sentenced to three years of prison and three years of extended supervision in Barron County Court.

Investigators say Hrbacek used a brick to break a window of the Chetek Rod and Gun Shop back in August.

Using a K9 officer, police were able to find Hrbacek’s home, where they found the stolen guns stashed in tall grass.
