Conviction results in forfeiture of 71 guns, 94K rounds ammo

VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. -- A Bangor, Michigan resident has been sentenced to one year of home confinement for selling firearms without a license. The judge ordered the forfeiture of 71 firearms and nearly 94,000 rounds of ammunition from 66-year-old David Rainey.

Rainey's August 2013 arrest was the result of a two and a half month investigation by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Van Buren County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office had received complaints Rainey was selling firearms and ammunition.

As a convicted felon, his Federal Firearms License was suspended and he was prohibited from possessing or selling firearms.

Rainey pleaded guilty to selling firearms without a license on April 10, 2014.

On July 23, he was sentenced to two years supervised release with one year to be served in home confinement.

Rainey was also fined $4,000.
