ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – A north St. Louis County man is accused of stealing a handgun, then selling it to a drug dealer in East St. Louis.

According to police, on March 24, 2011, Terrance McCaleb stole a .40 Smith and Wesson handgun from a home in the 1100 block of Wiskow Drive around 9 a.m.

Police said he then sold the gun to a drug dealer.

An investigation led police to McCaleb, who was arrested and taken into custody. He was charged Jan. 9 with stealing a firearm.

The gun was later recovered from the drug dealer, who was named by McCaleb.

McCaleb was released from custody Thursday after posting bond.
