Two Arrested In KCK Charged With Firearms Violations

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – Two men arrested Wednesday morning in Kansas City, KAN., have been charged with federal firearms violations, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Dominic N. Hayes, 33, Kansas City, KAN., and Troyton Mozingo, 31, Kansas City, KAN., both are charged with one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction. Hayes was arrested Wednesday morning at a storage facility near 74th and State in Kansas City, KAN. Mozingo was arrested at a duplex in the 1200 block of North 64th Drive after a brief police chase.

The two appeared Friday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, KAN., on a criminal complaint alleging they unlawfully possessed a .40 caliber HS product pistol and a 7.62 caliber Chinese made SKS rifle. Both were prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms because of prior felony convictions.

If convicted, they face a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000. The Kansas City, KAN., Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Terra Morehead is prosecuting.
