The U.S. attorney’s office in Muskogee announced Friday that two Sequoyah County men and a Tulsa man have pleaded guilty to stealing and being in possession of firearms stolen from a Federal firearms licensed dealer, Gems Gun & Pawn in Sallisaw.
Gregory McIntyre, 19, of Sallisaw and Jimmy Don McCoy Jr., 25, of Tulsa, pled guilty to stealing firearms from Gems Gun & Pawn.
Christopher Jordan Lee Foreman 22, of Vian pled guilty to being in possession of stolen firearms.
Both crimes are punishable by not more then 10 years in prison, up to a $250,000 fine, or both.
The indictment alleged that McCoy and McIntyre stole the guns and Foreman possessed the stolen firearms, all of which had been shipped and transported in interstate commerce. The charges arose from an investigation by the Sallisaw Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The defendants will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service pending sentencing.
