Michigan felon pleads guilty to federal gun crime
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A Michigan man pleaded guilty yesterday to a federal gun charge, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Quadralon Mayberry-Figures, 20, of Wyoming, Michigan, entered his guilty plea to being a felon in possession of a firearm. U.S. Attorney Stuart commended the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Hurricane Police Department for the investigation.
On February 17, 2017, an officer with the Hurricane Police Department conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 64. Mayberry-Figures was a passenger in the vehicle. During a search, the officer located a Diamond Back Arms 9mm pistol in his right front pocket.

Mayberry-Figures faces up to 10 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on April 23, 2018.
Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie S. Taylor is responsible for the prosecution. The plea hearing was held before United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun crime in the United States by networking with existing local programs targeting gun crime.
