YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Mahoning County Grand Jury indicted two men who police had to order out of a car at gunpoint near a Youngstown church in October.

Markus Cameron and Joseph Jackson are charged with conspiracy and improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle.

Officers said they found four rifles and several rounds in the car, which was parked near St. Dominic Parish.

Jackson told police that he was trying to get his stolen property back, and that he only had the guns for protection.

Cameron said they planned to use the guns to scare the people that stole their property, according to police.
