A Sulphur man pleaded guilty Wednesday to possessing a silencer, according to United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook.

Robert Reid Taylor, 46, of Sulphur, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Kathleen Kay to one count of possession of an unregistered firearm silencer.

According to the guilty plea, Taylor was found with an unregistered firearm silencer on September 7, 2017. The silencer had no manufacturer's markings or serial number. It was also not registered in the National Firearms and Transfer Record. Taylor faces up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safe for everyone. 

The ATF conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Dominic Rossetti is prosecuting the case.
