For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Hampshire

CONCORD – A Nashua man was indicted in connection with unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition, U.S Attorney Jane E. Young announces.

Robert Reidy, age 32, was indicted on one count of possession of firearms and ammunition by a prohibited person and one count of possession of unregistered firearms. Reidy is in state custody on related charges. Reidy will appear in federal court on March 6th, 2024 at 2:00p.m.

According to the charging documents, on December 5, 2023, Reidy possessed three pistols, a short-barreled rifle, and a silencer, as well as 160 rounds of ammunition. As a previously convicted felon, Reidy is prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition under federal law.  The short-barreled rife and silencer were unregistered firearms.

The charge of possession of firearms and ammunition by a prohibited person provides for a maximum sentence of up to 15 years in prison, up to a three-year term of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000.  The charge of possession of unregistered firearms provides for a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release, and a fine of $10,000.  Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

The Nashua Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives led the investigation. Valuable assistance was provided by the Manchester Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany Scanlon is prosecuting the case.

The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
