A man from Stringer has pled guilty on weapons charges.

According to U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst, 39-year-old James Christopher Varner has pled guilty to illegally possessing an unregistered machine gun. 

Hurst went on to say in a news release that the guns were found when deputies with the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office were sent to Varner’s home on a domestic violence call in January.

When deputies arrived they found a victim at the home. When they tracked down Varner, they found more guns, drugs, a KKK robe/hood and more. 

With the assistance of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a total of 46 firearms were seized, including 4 machine guns, 2 sawed-off rifles, multiple silencers, multi-round magazines, machine gun conversion kits, and other weapons.

Varner faces a maximum of 10 years in prison on the charge.
