BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A convicted felon from Williston faces up to life in prison after being convicted in federal court on weapons charges.

Authorities who executed a search warrant at the home of Gabriel Garcia-Hernandez in January say they found drugs, drug paraphernalia, five guns and more than 300 rounds of ammunition. They say the serial number on one of the guns had been scratched to the point of being illegible.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says a jury on Wednesday convicted Garcia-Hernandez of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number. His sentencing was not immediately scheduled.

Garcia Hernandez was prohibited from possessing guns because of multiple felony convictions in New Jersey and Florida for crimes including assault, armed robbery and kidnapping.
