Neosho Man indicted for illegal firearms

Updated:

Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Neosho, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for illegally possessing several firearms, including a machine gun.

Andrew J. Sisco, 30, of Neosho, was charged in a three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo.

Today’s indictment charges Sisco with being a felon in possession of firearms. Sisco allegedly possessed a Cobray 9mm fully automatic machine gun, a Mossberg 7mm rifle, a Savage Arms 30-06 caliber rifle, a Tanfoglio .22-caliber rifle, a Sig Sauer 9mm handgun, a Hi-Standard 12-gauge shotgun and a Browning Arms Company 30-06 rifle on Aug. 26, 2015.

Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of any firearm or ammunition. Sisco has two prior felony convictions for fleeing and eluding law enforcement and felony convictions for driving under the influence (third or subsequent offense), felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated battery.

Sisco is also charged with one count of illegally possessing a machine gun and one count of illegally possessing a silencer.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Carney. It was investigated by the Newton County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
