Christopher Ray Edwards, age 37, of Rock Hill, South Carolina, was charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, possession of firearm not registered in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record and receiving ammunition while under a felony indictment. As part of a plea agreement, Edwards pleaded guilty to the receiving-ammunition charge.

Troopers searched the vehicle and discovered a homemade AR-15 style rifle and multiple rounds of various ammunition.

This crime was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Wyoming Highway Patrol. Assistant United States Attorney T.J. Forwood prosecuted the case.
