Las Vegas Man Pleads Guilty to False Statements in Connection With The Purchase of Firearms

CONCORD – David Reiter, 57, of Las Vegas, Nevada, pleaded guilty to one count of making false material statements in connection with the purchase of eight firearms, announced United
States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

On June 1, 2006, Reiter purchased eight firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer located in New Hampshire. At the time of the purchase, Reiter completed a Form 4473 with respect
to the firearms on which he claimed to be a New Hampshire resident and also claimed that he was the actual buyer of the firearms. On the date of the purchase, Reiter was not a New Hampshire
resident and he was not the actual buyer of the firearms. Reiter purchased the firearms and delivered them to a third party.

United States Attorney John P. Kacavas praised the efforts of federal law enforcement in this case and said, “ensuring that persons who violate the prohibition against possessing firearms are
brought to justice is a central mission of my office. We will continue to work closely with our state and federal partners to enforce federal gun laws.”

Reiter faces a statutory maximum sentence of ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine and is scheduled to be sentenced on September 22, 2014 at 10:30 a.m.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and is being prosecuted by First Assistant United States Attorney Don Feith.
