MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A Ewen man has pleaded guilty in federal court to his firearm and drug charges.

Keith Raymond, 29, plead to convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition (10 years in prison and 3 years supervised release) and distribution of meth (20 years in prison and a term of supervised release of up to life).

According to the criminal complaint, on September 8, 2017, Raymond received a sentence of 10 month’s confinement and 23 months’ probation for felony assault with a dangerous weapon in Ontonagon County Courts.

The complaint states that a confidential informant from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team arranged to purchase 3.5 grams of meth and a SKS rifle from Raymond in Ewen on June 20, 2018.

The transaction was audio and video recorded.

The complaint states the firearm and ammunition Raymond had sold to the informant was manufactured in Russia, thus, they traveled in or affected “interstate or foreign commerce.”
