Pagan Gang Member Sentenced for Violation of Gun Laws

BALTIMORE, MD (August 28, 2007) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that James Randolph Krenzer, 43, of Brooklyn, was sentenced in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to 30 months incarceration for illegal possession of a firearm. Judge Phillip T. Caroom suspended all but six months of the sentence to be served on house arrest. In addition, Krenzer was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to perform 40 hours of community service. Krenzer, who had previously been convicted of second degree assault, is prohibited by Maryland and federal law from possessing firearms.

In May, Maryland State Police troopers executed a search and seizure warrant at Krenzer’s home in Brooklyn, Anne Arundel County, where they located handguns and ammunition hidden above ceiling tiles in his bedroom. Also seized were items connected to the Pagans motorcycle gang. Krenzer is a known member of the Pagans. After the State’s evidence was presented during the trial in June, Krenzer withdrew his not guilty plea and entered a plea of guilty to illegal possession of a regulated firearm.

This case was investigated by the Maryland State Police Firearms Enforcement Section. The case was prosecuted by the Firearms Trafficking Unit of the Office of the Attorney General. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Clarence Goetz for his work on the case.
