Posted: Updated:

WOOD RIVER, Ill. (AP) - A Madison County man has been charged with stealing 135 firearms from a sporting goods store in southwestern Illinois.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of Illinois said in a news release that a federal grand jury indicted 30-year-old Bradley N. Boswell on Thursday.

Boswell is accused of stealing shotguns, machine guns, a grenade launcher and more in February from Benbow City Sports in Wood River, about 17 miles northeast of St. Louis.

The Wood River native is charged with gun theft from a federal firearms licensee and possession of a firearm by a felon. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and fine of up to $250,000.

The U.S. Marshals will detain Boswell until a hearing scheduled for April 23.
