Sparks police say a routine check on a registered sex offender led to his arrest on Wednesday after he was found with several guns.

Police say detectives began to suspect that convicted sex offender Victor Alan Wright was in possession of several guns - and recently had pawned them.

Due to his convictions on sex-related crimes, Wright is prohibited from possessing firearms.

After an investigation and later surveillance, detectives determined that Wright had been in possession of at least four guns, and placed him under arrest.

Wright was booked into the Washoe County Jail on four counts of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. His bail is set at $80,000.
