CARROLL COUNTY MAN GUILTY OF FIREARMS VIOLATION

Maryland Attorney General, J. Joseph Curran, Jr., announces that Joseph Glenn Myers was found guilty in Howard County Circuit Court of filing a false application to purchase a regulated firearm. Mr. Myers was found guilty upon the State’s presentation in which Mr. Myers filed an incorrect application to purchase a handgun from a dealer at a gun show in Timonium, Md.

According to the statement Mr. Myers answered “No” to a question on the application which states in pertinent part “Have you ever been convicted of .... any violation classified as a misdemeanor in this State that carries a statutory penalty of more than two years....?” In fact, Meyers had been convicted of second degree assault in November of 2000 and placed on probation for one year. Myers was also ordered to pay a $100 fine and court costs.

This case was investigated by the Maryland State Police Firearms Enforcement Section. The case was prosecuted by the Firearms Trafficking Unit of the Attorney General’s Criminal Investigations Division. This unit is funded by grants from the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention and the Maryland State Police Cease Fire Council.
