GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Louisiana man has pleaded guilty to receiving stolen guns taken in a burglary at Cook’s Gun Shop in D’Iberville, Mississippi.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1AZPcEG ) Kevin Parfait, 27, of Houma, pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.

He faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. will sentence him Nov. 6.

Parfait was arrested Feb. 27. Authorities said he and his co-defendant, John Ross Harold, 30, also of Houma, led police on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash on Cedar Lake Road.

Federal firearms agents found 25 stolen weapons in the vehicle.

Harold was taken to the hospital from the scene of the accident, but was later released.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has placed Harold on its most-wanted list.

Harold also is wanted in an attempted murder and home invasion reported in April in Terrebonne Parish. A $10,000 reward is offered for information leading to his arrest.
