Man accused of buying guns with fake ID changes plea – WOWT

PAPILLION, Neb. (WOWT) – A man accused of using a fake ID to buy handguns changed his plea.

The feds struck a deal with Eliezar Alcaraz on Wednesday. There would be no trial for using a Fake ID to buy three guns.

Alcaraz told the judge that he wished to enter a guilty plea.

The 23-year-old, who was arrested in Sarpy County in July, admitted to making false statements at the Fort Crook Armory, a Bellevue gun dealer.

Alcaraz was training to be employed by Douglas County Corrections, but was fired after the arrest.

In Federal Court, investigators explained how Alcaraz’s cousin drove him to the gun dealer and told him which guns to buy. The cousin wasn’t old enough to buy a handgun.

The gun dealer said in once case three high capacity magazines were also purchased, capable of holding 17 rounds each.

“The Glock model 36 and model 17 firearm have not been recovered. Shell casings consistent with one of the guns were found at the scene of a July fourth shooting,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Christoper Ferretti said.

In court, the suspect said he was nervous the guns would be used to shoot people.

Alcaraz will be sentenced in Federal Court in mid-January. He faces a maximum of 18 years in prison.
