MIDDLESEX — A felon who isn’t supposed to own or possess firearms has been caught with 16 guns, according to authorities.

Brian Keith Rogers, 41, faces new weapons charges and has been returned to prison on previous convictions for which he was on parole.

Members of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division and N.C. Department of Public Safety Community Corrections received a tip about a stash of firearms at 10211 Old Lewis School Road south of Middlesex, said sheriff’s Maj. Eddie Moore.

On Nov. 24, detectives and officers went to the home and spoke with Rogers, a convicted felon on early limited confinement release from the Department of Public Safety as of Feb. 16.

“While speaking with Rogers, numerous firearms were immediately seen in plain view,” Moore said in a news release. “Detectives immediately applied for a search warrant for the residence, which led to the seizure of 16 illegally possessed firearms and assorted ammunition.”

Rogers had pistols, rifles and shotguns, Moore said.

Deputies charged Rogers with possession of a firearm by a felon before turning him over to the Department of Public Safety, which returned him to Central Prison in Raleigh for violating the terms of his early release.

“This is another example of the results of partnerships between agencies to help fight crime and keep our communities safe,” Moore said.

Rogers has a criminal conviction history stretching back to 1996, when at age 16, he was charged with breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods.

Since then, Rogers has been convicted on multiple counts of larceny; forgery; speeding to elude arrest; second-degree trespassing; wanton destruction of property; being a habitual felon; common-law robbery; and post release revocation, according to the N.C. Department of Public Safety.
