SALT LAKE CITY — A LaVerkin man who once served time in federal prison for having an incendiary device is now facing new weapons charges.
Tucker Reynolds, 48, was charged Friday in Washington County's 5th District Court with possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a second-degree felony; and three counts of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a third-degree felony.
According to a Washington County Jail booking report, "There were other seizures made during the search warrant that are expected to add additional weapon charges. … There are likely going to be more charges added in the coming days."
On Thursday, LaVerkin police assisted investigators from the Department of Homeland Security with serving a search warrant on Reynolds' home, according to the report.
"I was advised Tucker Reynolds had ordered a full automatic selector switch for a Glock. Possession of the switch itself is considered an unregistered machine gun," the report states.Comment on this story
Because Reynolds was convicted in 2005 in federal court of possessing an unregistered destructive device, he is currently prohibited from possessing dangerous weapons, according to the report. Reynolds was sentenced to five months in federal prison for that incident.
As investigators were serving the warrant, they noticed him driving by in his truck. After pulling him over, police found "a Glock 19 handgun in a compartment in the head rest. The firearm was loaded with a round in the chamber," the report states.
Inside his house, three "large knives" were seen on Reynolds' nightstand next to his bed, according to the report.
Reynolds was ordered to be held on no bail.
