Elderly Man Faces Federal Weapons Charges

An Anderson man faces federal weapons charges from an arrest in June. Anderson Police spotted 72-year-old Jim David Travis as he drove away from his home. They knew he had a suspended drivers license and was on felony probation for being in possession of drugs while armed. They pulled him over and searched his truck, reportedly finding a loaded 22 caliber handgun under the driver’s seat. Travis’s home was then searched, reportedly turning up a Mauser handgun and a Colt AR-15 rifle with a fully loaded 20 round magazine seated in it and 16 additional high capacity magazines, each loaded with 20 rounds. A federal grand jury returned an indictment against Travis Thursday. If convicted, he could get 10 years in federal prison.
