Police said two Connecticut men were arrested after they tried to sell three stolen guitars Monday night at a music store in Carle Place.

Sean Victory, 19, of 25 Brittany Ct., and Brett Harrison, 21, of 358 Talmadge Rd., both in Cheshire, Connecticut, were arrested and charged with third-degree criminal possession of stolen property after Nassau County police said they tried to sell the guitars, valued at more than $11,000, at the Sam Ash store on Old Country Road.

Harrison also was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon after Third Precinct officers discovered he had a gravity knife during his arrest at 7:39 p.m.

The two now face arraignment Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said Victory and Harrison offered to sell the three guitars -- a Gibson Les Paul and a Paul Reed Smith Semi-Hollow and a Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 -- only to have a store employee call police to report the guitars stolen.

It was not immediately clear when or where the guitars were taken. Police said only they were stolen during a burglary in Connecticut.
