Man Pleads Guilty to Stealing from FBI

JANUARY 18, 2007 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CST

 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A man who stole a gun, ammunition and protective vests from the car of an FBI agent has entered a guilty plea to a federal charge.

The theft was in April at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport at Highfill. Yesterday, James Grinder of Pineville, Missouri, pleaded guilty in Fayetteville to interstate transport of stolen firearm. Other related charges are to be dropped.

Grinder worked at a business at the airport.

Prosecutors say Grinder left the gun with an acquaintance, where it was recovered. He traded the rest of the equipment for $200, a pistol and ammunition.

Prosecutors say Grinder is a convicted felon and parole violator. He faces up to ten years in prison and fines of up to $250,000. Sentencing will be held later.

Police say he used a hammer to break into the FBI agent's car.
