PENDLETON, OR- Phillip Sweet claimed the two rifles that were found on Sherwood Heights Elementary School's roof Thursday.

Sweet knew his two rifles were stolen last year, but he never thought he would find them.  His wife saw the report about the guns found on the roof and called her husband soon after.

Sweet noticed the guns were missing about nine months ago.  He identified them at the police station as his.

The guns were not loaded at the time, and he thinks the people that stole it, did not mean any harm.

“A lot of people might get the first impression that there might have been some kind of malicious plan or something at the school, and I don't think that was the case,” said Sweet.

Sweet has his own theory about what may have happened to his rifles.

“I think that there were just some young kids that stole them and threw them up on there because they were scared and didn't know what to do with them,” said Sweet.

He lives near the elementary school and was glad no one was injured. 

Police and school officials are still not sure who put the guns up there or why.
