HONOLULU (AP) — Federal agents say a man used a mango picker to steal six guns out of a Maui storage unit.

Court documents say Sancho Agtaguem (AHG-tahg-uem) allegedly used the long pole attached to a basket for grabbing fruit to lift the weapons out of the unit.

The owner of the guns didn't realize the two revolvers, two rifles and two pistols were missing until contacted by police.

The documents say Agtaguem allegedly traded one rifle for drugs. Agents say one of the handguns ended up with a convicted felon who was pointing the gun at people at a Walgreens.

Agtaguem is scheduled for a detention hearing Wednesday. His attorney, Megan Kau, says she hasn't been able to speak with him because he needs a Tagalog interpreter.
