Grand jury indicts man on illegal firearm charges

A 24-year-old Raleigh County man was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury on illegal firearm possession charges.

Cameron Martin Taylor, of Shady Spring, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.  

According to the two-count indictment, on April 24, Taylor allegedly possessed an AR-50 rifle near White Oak and he allegedly knew and had reasonable cause to believe the firearm was stolen.

Taylor was previously convicted of grand larceny, daytime burglary and nighttime burglary in April 2010 in Raleigh County Circuit Court. He did not have his rights to possess a firearm restored.

Taylor now faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.

The West Virginia State Police conducted the investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney John File is handling the prosecution.
