Posted: Updated:

A Roane County man who broke into a camper van and stole several firearms pleaded guilty on Wednesday to being a felon in possession of firearms.

Robert Allen Starcher, 29, of Spencer, entered into a guilty plea in federal court in Charleston. On January 1, 2012, Starcher broke into a camper in Walton, and took four rifles and two shotguns that were inside. Following the burglary, Starcher took the firearms that he had stolen from the camper, along with other stolen goods, and traded the items for an SUV.

Starcher was prohibited from possessing firearms because of multiple prior felony convictions in Ritchie, Calhoun, Braxton and Gilmer County.

Starcher faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced on August 15, 2013.
