A federal grand jury has returned two indictments against Lawrence Guerin Fleming, 37, in Fairfield, and has charged two charges for felony possession of ammunition. Philip A. Talbert announced at a press conference on Thursday. The indictment was unsealed after Fleming was arrested on May 19.
On February 1, Fleming lost control of his bike and crashed on Highway 50 in Sacramento County, according to court documents. Witnesses stopped to help Fleming, who asked Witnesses to hide a ghost gun loaded with eight ammo.
When the police arrived, witnesses told them about the gun. Fleming’s arrest warrant was later issued.
On March 17, police stopped Fleming on suspicion of speeding and arrested him. During his arrest, Fleming reportedly told police that he had a weapon for him. The weapon was also a ghost gun, with a large magazine with 14 magazines, officials said.
A search for Fleming’s car during a federal arrest on May 19 reportedly found a third ghost gun in the trunk of his car, also with an extended magazine.
Fleming cannot legally carry guns or ammunition because he was previously convicted of a federal felony in northern California for assaulting a US Postal Service carrier with a gun.
If convicted, Fleming faces a maximum statutory fine of 10 years in prison and a fine of $ 250,000 for each count.
