Doctor Arrested on Grenade Charges (AR)
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 02:13 AM by davepc
A doctor who has been sanctioned by the state medical board was arrested after grenades were found in a field near his home, but authorities say the arrest is not tied to a recent car bombing that seriously wounded the board's chairman.

Dr. Randeep Mann, an internal medicine specialist from Russellville, was arrested by federal agents on a charge of possession of unregistered firearms. He is expected to remain in federal custody at least until a bond hearing Monday in federal court in Little Rock.

An ATF affidavit says agents interviewed Mann in February after the car bomb in West Memphis critically injured the head of the state medical board. Mann showed them his grenade launcher at the time.

But Austin Banks, a special agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, says Mann's arrest this week was not tied to the investigation into the February 4th car bombing that wounded Dr. Trent Pierce. Pierce remains in critical condition at a Memphis hospital.

Banks said the arrest resulted from a complaint to the Pope County Sheriff's Office about grenades found in a field near Mann's residence.

The affidavit says a canister buried on the property contained 98 grenades, the kind used in grenade launchers. ATF searched the property and found 5 more canisters, similar to the one that was buried. The affidavit says agents found two grenade launchers in a safe in the basement and 110 fully automatic machine guns valued at more than $1 million located throughout Mann's house.

3. "Any person who violates or fails to comply with any provisions of this chapter shall, upon
conviction, be fined not more than $10,000, or be imprisoned not more than ten years, or both." 26 USC 5871

If each of the 98 grenades and each of the 110 machine guns is a separate violation, the maximum fine could reduce Mann's assets considerably.

4. machine guns and grenades are perfectly legal to own in most states. All
that is required is paying a $200 transfer tax to the .gov. for his collection to be valued at $1M I suspect they are all transferables and therefore probably legal. I think they may be interested in him for some other reason.
