Wisconsin Felon Charged With Illegally Possessing A Firearm, Ammunition | USAO-MN

United States Attorney Erica H. MacDonald today announced a federal indictment charging GERALD SEAN CLARK, 49, with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of being a felon in possession of ammunition. CLARK will make his initial appearance in U.S. District Court at a later date.

According to allegations in the indictment, on July 10, 2020, CLARK was found to be in possession of a Ruger model LCP .380 handgun, a magazine containing 27 rounds of 7.62×39 semi-automatic rifle ammunition, and 23 rounds of Winchester .410 shotgun shells ammunition. Because CLARK has prior felony convictions, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time.

This case is the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Minnesota State Patrol. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), an initiative that brings together federal, state, and local law enforcement to combat violent crime. This case is also part of Project Guardian, the Department of Justice’s signature initiative to reduce gun violence and enforce federal firearms laws.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie E. Allyn is prosecuting the case.

The charges contained in the indictment are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

GERALD SEAN CLARK, 49
