CRESSONA, Pa. -

Police in Schuylkill County have made a gun arrest in connection with a homicide case.

They've arrested Mark Barton, 47, of Cressona.

Investigators say he sold a gun to Keith Reber without completing the proper transfer.

You'll recall Reber is one of two men facing homicide charges in the death of Bryan Smith.

He was found tied to a tree and gagged in South Manheim Township in May.

Police say Reber and another man, Daniel Dull, confessed to the crime.
