BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man has pleaded guilty to illegal weapons charges, including possession of a machine gun by a convicted felon.

Authorities say Dustin Wolff was in possession of three rifles and nearly 400 rounds of ammunition. One of the weapons was allegedly converted to permit full automatic fire.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 28.

Wolff had earlier argued unsuccessfully to have the charges thrown out because he believed law enforcement officers conducted an illegal search of a shed on his father’s property. A judge ruled Wolff consented to the search by cutting a padlock on the door of the building.

A public defender could not be reached for comment.
