Boyline man gets 2 years on illegal silencer charge

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, La., (KNOE 8 News) - A Doyline man is looking at 2 years in prison on charges of having a silencer that wasn't registered.

Brett Roberts, 52, of Doyline, La., was sentenced yesterday afternoon by U. S. District Judge Tom Stagg to 24 months in prison for possession of a non-registered silencer that he used to commit various hunting violations in Webster & Bossier Parishes.

In late 2009, Special Operations Agents for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries initiated an investigation against Brett Roberts for hunting deer at night using a rifle with a silencer and selling deer meat. The investigation revealed over 120 hunting violations committed through the possession and use of numerous non-registered firearms.

At sentencing, the Court noted that Roberts also possessed and distributed methamphetamine to undercover agents.
