Arlington police and FBI agents arrested an Arlington man during their investigation of a gun and weapons parts found buried earlier this month, officials said Friday..

Authorities executed a search warrant Thursday at a home in the 4000 block of North 17th Street and later charged Rodney Gunsauley, 61, with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, police said in a statement. Gunsauley was held without bond at the county detention facility, the statement said.

On Oct. 12, police were called to an area near Patrick Henry Drive and I-66, where workers were digging and said they found PVC pipe containing a gun and weapons parts. The FBI was also called to investigate.

It was not clear what led police to the Arlington residence and a police spokeswoman declined to release any more details about the case.
