CHARLESTON, West Virginia -

A Greenbrier County man admitted to a federal judge that he stole firearms from a federal firearms licensee Thursday. 

David Rookstool, 22, admitted that in November 2010, he and a friend first stole a vehicle, and then an estimated 20 firearms from a weapons dealer in Lewisburg. The pair later hid the weapons at an abandoned house before giving two to a third unidentified individual. 

Rookstool pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal firearms from a federal firearms licensee. The Greenbrier County native faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

He is sentenced on June 19.
