Washington State Police Seize Weapons, Ammo from Felon
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Police in Washington state have seized 36 guns along with about 40,000 rounds of ammunition and taken into custody a convicted felon who isn't allowed to own firearms.
The Spokesman-Review reports that Spokane police on Thursday arrested 62-year-old Robert W. Crampton.
He faces 10 charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and is being held in the Spokane County Jail on $100,000 bond.
Police say a tipster told police that Crampton was preparing for a "zombie apocalypse" as well as potential other doomsday scenarios.
Crampton's criminal history includes battery with a deadly weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon after he opened fire on police in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Spokane police also found ballistic vests at the home.
