Austin L. Miller @almillerosb

Marion County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested a 47-year-old Summerfield man on Friday for 53 counts of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of possession of a firearm by respondent to injunction.

Sgt. Donald Buie and Detective Damon Baxley went to 17255 SE 30th Ave in Summerfield in reference to a missing person. The supervisor and the detective talked with Vincent L. Terry who gave them permission to search the residence.

Inside, officials found a .22caliber Marlin rifle, 53 .22-caliber ammunition in the master bedroom.

Terry told the detectives that the firearm was given to him by his father to shoot squirrels on his property. He said he did not know he was not allowed to have a gun.

Records show Terry has several convictions, one of which was for drug possession. He also has a non-expiring protection order of domestic violence issued in Colorado Springs that prohibits him from possessing or purchasing a firearm or any other weapon.

Terry was taken into custody and transported to the Marion County Jail.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.– Two Staten Island Boy Scout leaders allegedly linked to at least one overdose in the borough were busted with drugs and guns in a New Brighton home Friday afternoon, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

Alan Soler, 44, and Kevin Saunders, 25, were arrested at Soler’s home on Lafayette Avenue after authorities found 277 glassines of heroin, a shotgun, an imitation pistol, scales and drug packaging at the residence, police said.

Staten Island Narcotics Heroine Overdose Task Force executed the search warrant as part of an ongoing investigation into several drug overdose incidents, cops said.

Soler and Saunders, of Tysen Street in New Brighton, face several charges, including criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of  narcotic drugs, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, criminal possession of a weapon and failure to register a weapon, police said.  

Soler is also charged with resisting arrest, according to an NYPD spokeswoman.

There were two young children in the home during the search, and the defendants  were additionally charged with two counts of acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17, police said.

Soler has three prior arrests, including another pending drug case in Criminal Court stemming from a bust in October, according to online state court records.

Police said Soler was found with bags of alleged heroin and crack-cocaine following a traffic stop near Sharpe and Grove avenues in Port Richmond.

He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in that case, and is due back in court Feb. 5, court records state.

Saunders has six prior arrests, including a heroin bust in Tompkinsville last year, said the NYPD spokesman.

Saunders was a registered leader with the Boy Scouts, but the organization is now taking steps to remove him after learning

Report: Vegas shooter bought 55 guns in 1 year – USA TODAY

The gunman in the Las Vegas shooting that killed 58 people and wounded 489 others last October had purchased at least 55 guns in the prior 12 months, according to a report released Friday out of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Stephen Paddock, the 64-year-old who police believe acted alone in the shooting, had purchased 29 firearms between 1982 and 2016, according to the report, but then bought nearly twice that many between October 2016 and September 2017, according to the report. Most were rifles in various calibers, along with more than 100 firearm related items purchased through a variety of retailers.

Federal law requires gun stores to report multiple handgun purchases to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, but not multiple rifle purchases.

Among the weapons mentioned in the report were 23 found inside the hotel room from which Paddock fired into the crowd, including 13 AR-15 rifles equipped with “bump stocks,” a controversial device that allows shooters to fire bullets from semi-automatic rifles at a faster rate.

Fully-automatic weapons, which can fire continuously on a single pull of the trigger, are tightly regulated by the federal government and illegal to purchase in a number of states. But members of the public can easily buy bump stocks and achieve a similar rate of fire, without government oversight.

Guns and Hoses back for 15th year, raising money for MDA – WDBJ7

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The puck drops at 6 p.m. for the 15th annual Guns and Hoses Charity ice hockey game. It’ll be a little extra frosty on the ice as well, with the rivalry between the two teams and the coaches!

Leo Hirsbrunner is back for his 10th year as coach for the Hoses, and Caitlin Francis makes her rookie debut as coach for the Guns.

The teams and coaches are ready. The community will pack the Berglund Center, and money raised will benefit the local chapter of the MDA.

“If you’re going to come, come to help support the MDA, and you’ll learn about hockey by watching the game. It’s really not that complicated, and to be part of the event is a really good reason to come if it’s your first time ever coming,” said Danny Irvin, member of Team Hoses.

And events like these are important in an effort to find cures for debilitating diseases like Muscular Dystrophy.

“Every dollar means that we are one step closer to curing these diseases and ending all of the struggles that our families have,” said Diane Boardman, Area Director for MDA Greater Virginia.

Melanie Galleo’s son, Aiden has a form of Muscular Dystrophy.

“He wasn’t meeting milestones as a baby, and finally at age three a doctor took my concerns seriously and then that’s when we got the testing, and they gave us the results that we live with,” Galleo said.

Now, the MDA helps with their day by day, but it also does much more.

“The biggest thing that they provide to our family, and probably the families is hope, just hope through fundraising.”

Like the Guns and Hoses game, where the real winner is the MDA.
