Man pleads guilty after officers confiscate 50 weapons
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 33-year-old convicted felon who tried to sell firearms to a pawn shop pleaded guilty to illegally possessing firearms.
Jeremy Roark, of Jefferson City, pleaded guilty Monday to being a felon in possession of firearms.
Court documents indicate Roark tried to sell six firearms to a Jefferson City pawn shop in December 2017 and told the owner he had up to 70 more firearms that he could bring to the store. The owner eventually called authorities.
Investigators recovered about 50 firearms from Roark during the investigation.
Federal law does not allow convicted felons to own firearms or ammunition. Roark has prior felony drug convictions and for driving under the influence of alcohol.
