Federal crimes can be a rather large umbrella.
A man was recently indicted by a federal grand jury on a weapons charge in Orlando. The man, who is considered a "career criminal" with political ties, was arrested during the raid on his home.
The police also claim that there was drug and prostitution activity at the home. When federal and local agents entered the home they also found narcotics and guns. The suspect is not allowed to have any firearms due to the fact that he is a felon.
U.S. Homeland Security investigators state that the man told them that he purchased the weapon from a prostitute.
This sounds like something out of a plot from a Sons Of Anarchy episode.
