GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — Federal prosecutors are pursuing gun charges against two men from Delta — a felon later convicted of poaching and another man who allegedly gave him a rifle to hunt.
Brandon Cook, 30, and Jonathan Boyd, 29, were arrested Thursday and were later advised of the charges against them in federal court in Grand Junction.READ MORE: Snow, Rain A Welcome Sight In Colorado But Drought Still A Big Problem
Boyd is accused of providing Cook with a Weatherby model Mark V rifle. Prosecutors say Cook used the gun to poach a trophy class bull elk, something he pleaded guilty to in state court earlier.READ MORE: Colorado Community Uses 'The Social Dilemma' To Ignite Conversation About Unity, Change
