Rapid City Man Indicted On Firearm Charges
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rapid City man previously convicted of a felony was indicted by a federal grand jury for knowingly possessing a stolen 9 mm caliber pistol and a stolen .30-30 caliber rifle, knowing he was prohibited from doing so.
Ryan Umbarger, age 22, was indicted on June 18, 2013, for Possession of a Stolen Firearm and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on July 2, 2013, and pleaded not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years’ imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. The charges are merely an accusation and Umbarger is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Pennington County Sheriff’s Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman is prosecuting the case. Umbarger was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
