Arsenal of stolen arms gets six years in club Fed

I posted about this guy once before. This probably will be the last time. This is just down the road from where I work. I have driven by there many times. Apparently a lot of the items were stolen:



A 65-year-old Spokane man pleaded guilty Thursday to having an arsenal of illegal military weapons and explosives in a Bellevue storage unit.


Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrested Ronald Struve in January after his cache of weapons — which included dozens of machine guns and blocks of C-4 plastic explosives — was discovered by a man who bought at auction the contents of the storage unit at 12863 Northup Way after the unit’s rent went unpaid, according to a criminal complaint.



Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Woods declined to say what motive Struve had for collecting the weapons other than to note that Struve had said “he might have to use it some day.”


Under terms of a plea agreement, Struve faces a sentence of 63 to 78 months in a federal prison.
