Indictment in Illegal Gun Silencer Case

KSAL StaffOctober 7, 2015

A 44-year-old Chanute man has been indicted on charges of manufacturing and selling gun silencers illegally.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Tuesday that Shane Cox, owner of Tough Guys Army surplus store, was charged with 12 criminal counts, including possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiracy and National Firearm Act violations.

Prosecutors say Cox advertised unregistered silencers and manufactured silencers without paying federal taxes or without serial numbers. Authorities also say Cox made false statements to agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on April 21.

Cox faces prison time and fines.
