CONCORD – Hunter Ramsay, 29, formerly of Jefferson, New Hampshire, pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of possession of firearms by a previously convicted person, United States Attorney Jane E. Young announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Ramsay was wanted on outstanding state warrants for probation violations in both New Hampshire and Vermont when he was observed by New Hampshire State Police driving a truck in Bethlehem, NH on July 7, 2021. After Ramsay initially fled, his vehicle was disabled by the law enforcement’s employment of spike strips in Littleton, NH. Ramsay was taken into custody, and a total of eight firearms and over 600 rounds of ammunition were recovered from his person and vehicle following the later execution of a state search warrant. At the time, Ramsay was prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition under federal law as a result of a prior felony conviction in Vermont state court. Ramsay has been detained since his arrest.
Ramsay is scheduled to be sentenced on May 1, 2023.
This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, the New Hampshire State Police, and the Littleton, NH Police Department. The Coos County Attorney’s Office and New Hampshire Department of Corrections provided additional assistance. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Charles L. Rombeau.
