JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A news release from the office of Timothy A. Garrison, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, reports that a Fulton resident pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to a three-count indictment that charged him with manufacturing a firearm silencer in violation of the National Firearms Act, possession of the illegally-made firearm silencer, and to being a drug user in possession of a firearm.

Nathaniel Craig Carroll, 37, plead guilty to charges and admitted that he illegally manufactured a suppressor after his arrest for harassing a state children’s division employee who was involved in a state court proceeding regarding the removal of Carroll’s children from the home.

The determination, which came on October 24, 2017, reportedly upset Carroll a great deal, and he was seen immediately after the court hearing at a hardware store. Callaway County sheriff’s deputies followed up with the hardware store about Carroll’s purchases, and a search warrant was carried out the following day, October 25, at roughly 9 p.m.

Authorities found the suppressor on a shelf in Carroll’s garage next to a baggie of marijuana. A second silencer, 13 firearms, over 1,000 rounds of ammunition, and significant user amounts of marijuana were discovered in the house as well, according to the release.

A sentencing hearing is currently pending. Carroll could face up to 120 months in federal prison without parole on each of the three counts.
