Seized guns to be returned to Grand Junction man
GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado ” A Grand Junction businessman who had more than 150 guns seized from his home and office during a raid last year is scheduled to have the firearms returned to him Tuesday.
Mesa County SWAT teams took the weapons in a raid at Bill Martin’s A1 Repossessions on November 15th after police received a tip that he was a felon in possession of weapons.
Colorado law prohibits convicted felons from possessing weapons, and Martin had pleaded guilty to vehicular assault in 1991.
Local and federal prosecutors decided earlier this year not to pursue charges against Martin.
Sheriff’s department spokeswoman Heather Benjamin declined comment, but confirmed to The Daily Sentinel that the firearms will be returned.
