Pennsylvania Fugitive Caught In Casper Now Faces Federal Firearms Charge
A fugitive from Pennsylvania arrested in Casper last week on robbery, kidnapping and other charges has now been charged in federal court with being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday.
Marshall Glenn McGinty, 43, was captured on Feb. 25 after a cross-country trek that began in Berks County, Penn.
McGinty was charged in Natrona County Circuit Court with one felony count of receiving stolen property, namely the blue 2012 Honda Fit he used in his 1,800-mile journey.
Circuit Court Judge Brian Christensen ordered McGinty be held on a $250,000 bond.
McGinty has a long criminal history, most recently when the Pennsylvania State Police issued a fugitive warrant, charging him with kidnap, burglary, robbery and eight other crimes related to a home invasion near Allentown.
On the day of his capture in Casper, police notified the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that McGinty had robbed an individual at gunpoint using a an AK47 type assault rifle, according to the affidavit written by BATE Agent Steve McFarland and filed in U.S. District Court in Cheyenne.
After McGinty's arrest police obtained and executed a search warrant and recovered a Maadi 7.62-caliber AK47 variant rifle, he wrote. Maadi rifles are manufactured in Egypt and imported into the United States by Century Arms International.
McFarland found McGinty has been convicted of multiple felonies in several states, and had a criminal history of more than 40 pages, mostly from Florida. One of those felonies was for grand theft, for which he received a sentence from November 205 to May 2007.
In the federal system, conviction of being a felon in possession of a firearm is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment, up to a $250,000 fine, and at least three years of supervised release.
