Poplar Bluff man pleads guilty to unlawful possession of ammo

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

A Poplar Bluff  man has pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of ammunition.

According to the United States Attorney's Office, Jeffrey David Casey, 29, pleaded guilty to one felony count of being a previously convicted felon in possession of ammunition. He appeared before United States District Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr.

On August 25, 2010, pursuant to a state search warrant, a search was conducted at room 201 of the Super 8 Motel located on N. Westwood Boulevard, in Poplar Bluff, which was rented to and occupied by Casey.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, officers for the Poplar Bluff Police Department found methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and other drug related items in Casey's motel room. A search of Casey's 1994 Cadillac, parked on the hotel parking lot, resulted in the discovery of 40 rounds of .25 auto caliber ammunition and 35 rounds of .22 long rifle ammunition.

In 2005, Casey was convicted of breaking and entering and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Due to these previous felony convictions, he is prohibited from possessing ammunition and firearms, according to police.

Casey now faces a maximum punishment of 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing has been set for July 11, 2011.

This case was investigated by the Poplar Bluff Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives. Assistant United States Attorney Paul W. Hahn is handling the prosecution for the Government.
