TLC star Brandon Putman has been charged with two additional felony gun charges, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Earlier this year, the Meet The Putmans star was formally indicted on the charge of receiving or possessing an unregistered firearm.
Now, court documents filed on Thursday, April 11 show a grand jury filed a superseding indictment, additionally charging Putman with receiving or possessing a firearm made in violation of federal law and receiving or possessing a firearm that has no serial number.
As Radar previously reported, Putman allegedly entered a gun shop in Elkton, Michigan on Nov. 28, 2017 and asked the owner to create 10 duplicates of a metal firearm part he brought in. The owner later discovered the part “was very similar to a full-automatic conversion sear for an AR-15,” according to court records.
This activity was reported to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. A special agent took on the case and confirmed the shop owner’s suspicions.
Putman faces a penalty of 10 years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine for the felonies.
