A member of a prominent western New York family is charged with stealing heirlooms, including guns, and selling them to buy heroin.

Police in East Aurora say 22-year-old Megan Hubbard-Riley and her boyfriend took 13 handguns and other valuables from her mother, Mary Hubbard's, house over six months.

Officers say one of the guns was used in a shooting in Buffalo last week.

Mary Hubbard is a granddaughter of Elbert Hubbard, who at the end of the 19th Century founded the Roycroft artisan community as a cradle of the arts and crafts movement in East Aurora.

Hubbard-Riley and John Lawandus are charged with grand larceny. The arrests were first reported by The Buffalo News on Wednesday.

Hubbard-Riley's attorney wasn't immediately reachable by phone. Court records show no attorney for Lawandus.
