GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal authorities say John Ross Harold’s trial has been reset in the Feb. 27, 2014, break-in at Cook’s Gun Shop in D’Iberville.

The 31-year-old Harold, of Houma, Louisiana, was set for trial June 1. His attorney had asked that a judge extend his change-of-plea deadline, which was set for this week.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1zZIAJi ) Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. set a new plea deadline of July 13 and a trial date of Aug. 3.

Federal agents have said Harold and Kevin Parfait, also of Houma, stole 25 weapons during the break-in.

Harold faces charges of stealing firearms from a licensed dealer, felon in possession of a firearm and receiving stolen firearms.

Parfait accepted a plea deal and received a 104-month prison term.
